Paradiso

Love is a crooked willow
that sprouts feathery branches
a trunk of jellyfish twigs
and mangrove roots.
The mountain,
the curtain of the stage.
A river of raindrops
beneath its purple shade.
A breath of zephyr; the tree,
dandelions

Love is a printed flower,
a genus unknown.
Leaves of amber sheets, parchment paper.
An origami grows from aluminum stems.
Flora of the sun
grazing lazily on Mays
lures flies to its depths-
a daughter of Venus.

Love is an insect
weaving a cocoon from Chinese silk
traded for moon kisses
and azure embraces.
Polka dot wings, angels' hair.
A cup of brown sugar
enveloped in its claws.
The budding of a bird bloom,
ambrosia. The morning dew
refreshment while it hops across blossoms.
