Summer Snow Angel

summer snow angel
naked
in the grass
pushing
a
garden up through
her
hands
legs drawing
out
the frost
winter flowers
lie beneath her
roses bloom
an
orange tree
blossoms
as
she rolls on
her
side
from under
comes
foundation for a
well
as she holds a
bucket
and traces
her
body line
bare fingers
empty
full body
stretching in
a
yawn –
Adam
climbs down
w/
oranges in
satchel
reaches and
pulls
her to
high arched
feet
Eve,
missing-just-barely
the apple
tree
babied + hidden
spring snow
so
clean…
…neat
