seduction

our world, redolent with scent–
citrus, star jasmine
heavy, alluring

buds open
to welcome bees,
to welcome hummingbirds
drinking deeply

a pair of mallards nest
amid her fallen blossoms

wide awake at last,
earth sighs,
whispers a promise to spring
invites her song

across the water, satin wings unfurl

I’m no doubt late for posting this at dVerse OLN, but would like to give a heads-up. Pay a visit to refresh your thirst for poetry.
