Meadow Mediation

The wind weeps among the gabbling petals

striations of grief elongating stamens and bending stems

toward hollow ground 

scattering crimson and canary blossom tissue

scarlet sorrow bleeds

from the wingrush of vesper sparrows 

and fervent prayer 

Leaving below

a slop of rusks   -discarded hopes lie worm-rooted, spent.
