Today

In my first warm step out

And as I stood before the moon

I was surprised by her smell

So well-remembered

(And as my love is)

That I grabbed it in that instant

To take her sweet joy

And claim it as mine —

Oh,

That first spring breath of honeysuckle before dawn!

    Oh, I just love this! I was lost in the romance of it and was imagining the wonderful notion of what the moon would smell like… and then it was a breath of honeysuckle. You just layered delight on to delight. 🙂 x
