Dahlia Daydreams

You
once
told me
about a
place
we could
rove

embodied in
leftover dahlias, saccharine dewdrops
tranquilized by
a setting smile.

In
your
fantasies,
I was a
gift of the Promised Land,
the angels
forgot to
kiss away
towards

the summer shine
tickled daydreams, wondrous divine—
that could only be mutilated
from a heavy heart’s
touch.

I
have
yet to
find
such
a sanctuary—
walking out
into
the
country flora gaze.

Muddy blue puddles emulate an everlasting life
but I know my footsteps will trail ahead in time.
