Ode To Something Great

by jessicagartlandn

Lavender,

warm earth and Petrichor

got her through the church’s door

Played Heaven’s thoughts upon her

a part as ruin’s daughter

Claimed by the war of Fathers

So Lavender I brought her

   

A great-great something

Something great indeed

   

Betrays an author’s hidden heart

Breath relieved of words,

with speed,

with ink,

the truth of love

Coffee colored pages of

Dust, I turn them into art

To earth instead she fell

some years later

Brings the smell

Lavender

warm earth and Petrichor

So sweet,

The least that I can bring to her

To rest

upon her feet .
