How the sun tells it

when I refrained from counting those lawns

starlight cleared away the emperor’s lunch

apart from that we saw slight wilderness

Sponsor Message

generally tea leaves interfere

the preferred nature trails evanescent

 

come noontime children crawled into her lap

looking up from caesar salad divine

Sponsor Message

circumstances drove her mother to song

this amused her friends believing it proves

pantheons call their chanting distraction

 

still the garden breeze crisp on her skin

Sponsor Message

delight alone remains of those bleak fields

indigenous saints beckoned metallic

always regard bursts forth from their harvest

gears grind away all virtuous remnants

 

after dessert I followed her outside

her melody sleek as though hummingbirds

whisper was the moment I first knew her

undisguised she shone past those violet clouds

her hush surrounding me with petals
