Richard King Perkins II - One Poem

Pale Necks of Lavender

Sweeping almost freely

eternal willows

soon to be tangled
by afternoon’s
westward moving air

swaying pale necks
of lavender

rustling her blond hair
as he skips stones

their secret pond—

an uncovered rock

its new place

only to settle
and become old
once again
