Blossom in the Basement

 

(for Hannah)

 

dried rose petals

flower cards

fell out

of old records

 

moved

 

to make  room

for new life

 

out of light

grows a bouquet

from dark closet space unearthed

 

what a bright picture passageway

 

 flower cups

vases of roses

are brought down

 

a

garden blooms

in

the cellar window well

 

a

young flower moves in

with her sweet perfume

 

a

 room comes alive

opening beyond flower curtains

 

vegetarian cooking

bunches of clothing

rearranging in the laundry

 

a

living wonder

falls asleep

underneath smooth petal sheets
