Milkweed

Posted

We were seven,
city girl, country boy
chasing each other
down the road
bordered by milkweed
that separated the two farms.
You grabbed the fluff
threw it in my hair
I cried, not knowing what it was,
you laughed,
both of us feeling
the flutter of first love.

Now at seventy,
you gone these thirty years
I spy the milkweed fluff
riding the breeze
of memory and feel
that flutter again.
