with magnolia scent
and the barn owl’s call
I feel my father lift me
yet only in my dreams
will I go home again

  he buys red roses
while she applies make-up
to camouflage
the yellow and violet
the black and the blue

    the only part
that’s not white
the shadow
of the hyacinth
upon itself

her lover's grave...
a dying chrysanthemum
casts its shadow
upon her heart

  missing her
I bathe in lavender water
a glimpse
of her aura
in the shimmer
