Chapter 1 – Temptation

Cradled in canopies of temptation

Our juniper universe

Orbits earth and sky.

Melancholy scatters itself like leaves

Under feet.

Anemone breezes

Smell of trampled begonias

And we dance.

We are dandelion oracles.

Jonquil – desireful in thought.

Silent in belladonna’s spell.

Vines of ivy entwine us

Tranquil seedlings

Lovers serene.

Honeysuckle is the color of our fate.


Raspberry remorse stains my teeth.


I chew shameful peonies

As my petals make me bow.

Make my day
