Blossom in the Basement


(for Hannah)


dried rose petals

flower cards

fell out

of old records




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



garden blooms


the cellar window well



young flower moves in

with her sweet perfume



 room comes alive

opening beyond flower curtains


vegetarian cooking

bunches of clothing

rearranging in the laundry



living wonder

falls asleep

underneath smooth petal sheets
