Mud and Lavender

The scent of lavender tickled my nose
a bird sang from his hidden nest
when cool mud squished between our toes

‘twas then you offered me a rose
and pulled me tight against your chest
the scent of lavender tickled my nose

You knew you were the one I chose
and you picked me above the rest
when cool mud squished between our toes

Through summer’s shade and sweet repose
surrender to our lovers’ quest
the scent of lavender tickled my nose

Songbird gone, replaced by crows
that summer stays within my chest
when cool mud squished between our toes

Though death has dealt deep grief and woes
These memories remain the best
the scent of lavender tickled my nose
when cool mud squished between our toes

  3. I think this Octo thing is wonderful. I feel you are really digging deep and creating beautiful imagery and sensual language. The structures are fun and you do them expertly. This poem is one of your very best…but I keep saying that because they are all so good!
