salad poem the second
(the first of a series of food poems)

the essence of a thousand sacred summer swallows
haunted by images of love & yesterday
soaring & shining
azure scarlet purple
they light for a moment in a tiny garden
whisper the language of perfume
to a bed of edible floral petals & wild spring greens
imagining a salad
