I saw you today- with your crooked smile
and your heart on your sleeve.
I saw you there in the garden, next to the forget -me- nots
and the "my love lies bleeding". I knew your head was the clouds and a conversation with dragons was pasings through the ethers.
You don't live with feet firmly planted.
Just before I saw you...in the garden- I was driving along Water Street
a "Love Song" came on the radio.
a parked car had a license plate that read "LOVE".
My attention was pulled to the very next parked car with a licence plate that read " TRAP".
I turned off the radio and kept driving.
with your head and heart in the Clouds
resting among the flowers
-the wildest of flowers
