The VGP Literate No. 3

i propped up the calla lily
by the weight of its own
claret & golden
like butter
                      melting slowly
just an arch
upon the wind
as a cardinal chirps
in the sway of evergreen
                                            above me
i ponder crystal burgundy
the mower hums
the basketball kisses concrete
rubber mars asphalt
..and love is never far behind
