Myriads of seasons and joys
bring me to this sweet afternoon
where lilacs embrace me with the extravagance
of their perfume.
Such luxury. A hundred thousand corollas
shine with their singular expression.
The softness of one,
joined in a chorus of scent
so profoundly moving.
I hear their chant
in my bones
and taste their nectar.
Thank you for this kiss of immortality
your gift of love.
