She’s seduced by the seasons.
Beguiled by winter’s crystalline craft.
Pleased by autumn wildflowers
popping up in unexpected places.
Delighted by summer’s delectable treats.
Teased by spring scents borne on the breeze.
Charmed by cardinals, tickled by chipmunks, she’s
elusive: filtered sunlight,
morning glory magic.
She doesn’t come when called.
Won’t be beckoned. Only appears
at improbable moments.
Evanescent, evasive, she hovers
ever primed for escape --
butterfly, hummingbird, damselfly.
Mayhap a chimera?
more like a unicorn:
wild, untamed, unbroken.
She won’t be roped and ridden.
A wholly mythical beast –
unless you believe.
