soul steeped in wonder
by Michelle Villanueva


ducks once dwelled among

this cool water as you once

lived among these paths


gardens were your wonder then

tilling the soothing balm

for your time scraped soul


dandelion seeds the fairies

scatter relentless blessings

clothed in tiny yellow suns


unaware this field

held still greater gifts than these

when you whispered forth lilacs


yet it must warm your wide heart

knowing flowers still abide here

petals beckon in the breeze

a black line
