A season of sun

Gaping yellow

petals
white riots
surrounding sunken
hearts.

On the bank
nondescripts
in the field
I-spies.

Green leaves
of grass
and white
dandelion

Partitioning
a meadow
far back
from the road.

So much
that the sun
must find shadow
to rest

In summertime
all the time

Leaves an abode
of nothing
but less
illuminance.

While long
purple fingers
and lovelace
tulip tree

Turn to a season
in the sun
And a lost one
such as me.
