Meditating on flowers of my pasture, plucked with my eyes,

Mountains with vibrant floras
Led down to fruit laden orchards
In the verdant vales below.
I heard her then, a syrupy song
Of tender love and feats of old.

of the same vine, 
we entwine
with hearts a fluttering,

Sunlight seeps
through the blinds,

The ceiling fan sweats
from its labor.

the old cat sprawls,
soothing her...

Syrupy dewdrops,
slowly trickle 
down the sides of
a yellow tulip.
