Lilac Air - v4

A living presence, growing,
sweet, intoxicating, alluring
spreading out onto the playground
the blossoms, bushes changing the air, its texture,
soft, subtle, a presence, enveloping
lilac air at the side of the school
calling, enticing each passersby

To linger, to drink, to soak in
aerosol nectar, a drug ready
sweet, lively spring perfume
a perfect fragrance, enticing
rich with memory, with color
under a cloudy blue sky, comforting
warm this Wednesday afternoon

Living bouquet, immersion,
a balance of purple, of green
set off against, before, alive,
the warm red brick of the school;
cool air of spring, a happy presence,
wrapping around us, arms entwined
reaching for us, out of a sense of love
