Petals

Location

I wonder

 what

that taste

will be?

 

Those two perfectly curved

 petals

poised upon your skin

 

Will they taste

of honeysuckle

on a summer evening?

 

Or will it be a feeling they bring,

like the welcome

of your smile?

 

And what of their scent?

Like the one of your

arms and neck?

Of rainy days and basil leaves

candles, comforters, and camellias.

 

What will those

petals

bring

to me?
