Bridals Of The Plum, Sweet Cherry Or Apple

bridals of the plum
sweet cherry or apple
who would not want to live
in such a kingdom

where it snows flowers
when only the wind blows
and by no command

let velvet trumpets sound
white velvet murmured the syringa
near a childhood home, dissolved.
we are wreathed very fine
only walking by you

and in all the neighborhoods
of white and green
sometimes a pale pink blushing
toward the stars lifts the wayward

petals-
longing to be constellations
