magnetic

OK, I’m in love with the magnolia tree by my house. Today’s poem, written expressly for NaPoWriMo.

 

magnetic

if only the magnolia blossoms
would cling to me
like magnets

i would be clothed in white garlands
trailing warm ribbons of perfume
wherever i walk
interrupting every distraction
evoking, especially from myself,
a smile

  1. when magnolia petals mix with april showers and the smooth hood of a car, they do become magnetic. took a bunch to work with me yesterday!
