When I Think of Her Flowering Poetry

by Adrian Ernesto Cepeda

I cling to glimpses 

of her garden blossoming

flowering skins igniting 

through the first touches 

of morning, sprinkling

moisture I can hear 

her blooming spreads, 

her wet dew gushing

through the curling

bushes she appears

her wanting silently

humming beautifully 

when I think of her 

flowering poetry, I love 

when I feel her petals 

sprout sprinkling 

bouquets so stunningly

she becomes
