It’s you who had me dreaming
lilacs, breathing April’s sweetest
tears, tasting sugared lemon rinds,
hearing bougainvillea’s fuchsia
song, taking shortcuts
across the lawn to kick
through jacaranda’s silent
petalfall. Like Van Gogh’s
flowers twist their faces
to the sun, I now turn mine
to the desert moon for warmth
and light and calm. As if you
were with me,
as if you loved me.
