Collecting Flower Petals

Sensual poppy centered,
Chrysanthemums as her

first ring, Zinnia second.
All placed with a sense

of nostalgia–walking
down Markland or finding

a shrub-covered cove
in the sunlight to bake

your skin into mine–
It’s just another place

I’ll miss… Her olive-colored
hands don’t know patterns

remind us that there is
order somewhere

outside of the mandala,
not already fallen,

waiting to be collected…
