A Stolen Kiss

does the snow remember the leaf it so

briefly kissed

as it died

melting

or the somber grey of winter on her

burning gold

promises

of spring

rays of bergamot claim the tender lot

sending june

to her cheeks

blushing

seasons alight – flushed red with august – rushed

auspicious

lush roses

dripping

frozen ground swell – shatters like tarnished bells

harm’nizing

their cold song

ringing

grains of apricot speckled with sunspots

tinted tawn

fragrant spice

inviting

the lonely leaf – kiss stolen by that thief

by summer

ravenous

lusting
