the picnic

a quiet bell tolls from someplace far enough to make it so 

carried 

by the same delicate current of air 
that wafts a perfect mixture 
of her sun-warmed perfume 
with the runaway scent of a distant thunder cloud 

across 
a
yearning
yellow
blanket 

to an overwhelmed smile 
that trembles at the effort 
of distinguishing 
which is more consuming
