on the edge

of the country roads

a wild rose-

it belongs to nobody

but gives itself to all

Mother's day . . .

even by your grave

I still need to know

if you like the roses

I've brought you

a gust of wind

scattering rose petals

this way and that—

a word from your sisters

is all it takes
