Silent flowers under thunder.
She tends the garden
by staring through the window.
A downpour of thoughtsmix daydreams and doubt,
splash in her mind
and channel off.
The green in her eyesruns down her cheeks
like unripe berries
falling and bouncing from sight.
She’s waiting for new scenerywith laughter in her pockets.
The hair across her shoulders
And the heartbeat beneath her skinwaits patiently
for his kiss.
