She peeks through petals; behind a membrane of newborn cellulose,

She tarries

With her foot on the chest of frosts’ catharsis:

He has been torn from his post again.

Red-breasted birds muddle early morning silence as water,

Once again,

Returns in drops to form pools on the Earth’s floor.

Sex sails the air:

Misguided pollen is the silent assailant

Of those fallen inadvertently to her will.

She will bathe herself in the light of her growth, and from her fingertips

Milky wishes do drop

Promises of new beginnings and new tomorrows.
