A Time to Blossom


autumn kiku

a beautiful time to blossom 

among the raindropped pines

just as squirrels collect winter nuts

you collect my love and admiration


Ah, Kiku, that quietly evocative name for a geisha in days gone by, and name, also of chrysanthemums in Japanese, a flower that indeed does blossom colourfully in autumn.


I first saw a picture of you wearing a red and white flowery dress, taking in the fragrance of flowers nearly as tall as you were, reaching between the petals.


Just as flowers, we blossom many times.
