butterfly wings
folding and unfolding
one more time
I wrap myself in his words:
kimono, geisha, girl

  golden wings
of a butterfly ...
it flees
after grazing
the edge of my shadow

    garden meeting –
a butterfly
catches the speaker's eye
a mosquito circles
in my direction

I watch from bed
as my friend weeds my garden
in the hot sun –
love is sometimes cloaked
in sweat and soil

  a red kiss                
trembles on the air            
in this winter garden
     a single
     long-stemmed rose
