Wildflower Extraordinary

Poetry, Claire Kroening

Days wither

captured comforts to

gently lit pines,

you're a playful-gleam

of living room dances.

Winter solstice sunsets

drown me in moments,

where our hands lay

two feet away

on lovesick, aimless laughter.

Small talk muddles

our deep-cut memories;

where snow-composed pathways

set my world aflame.

You're wildflower extraordinary.
