Mint Leaf Tract
In floral perfume,
nectar gnawing bees who buzz with sugar coated glee,
honeypots for maple syrup magnets as they flit and taunt,
garlands of magnolia upon the beechwood trellis,
lavender’s light purple trail a mint leaf tract from Cape Verde to South East Asia.
Lilac buds perspire on lamb skin swathes,
a misty bleat and frolic over far-flung heather muirs.
Summer breezes pot pourri
their spicy petals while they linger over luscious gardens, wedded to an emerald lawn ether.
Blessed are those senses we’ve been gifted with to revel in that labyrinthine maze,
whose vivid weave transports is to this lasting earthly heaven in our midst.
