skeletons

straw colored seed heads
glow
in the warm light of dusk

winds rush, then settle
thoughts drown
in earth’s ujjayi

little heads bob along
behind
before
beside

look! skeletons!
of summer’s aphid-infested flowers
remembering ladybugs we once cared for so thoughtfully

one littte head wonders “what do aphids doooo?”
he is looking for poetry
not answers

i dig deep to meet him
it is hard work
lifting myself from my mind
