next to her rose tattoo
a pale blue vein

    a brown leaf
    crumpled by young fingers--
    sunset

    robust summer winds
    part in her hair --
    brown roots exposed

    drought survived--
    the tree adds
    another ring

    wildflower --
    side of the road
    red stain from her pale blue vein
