Suspended Animation

Suspended animation, pendant perfection,

buoyancy  battling autumn breeze;

where would you be without

adherence,  fusion,

attachment

to your

Vine?

Budding Well

Held aloft on dainty stem,

Feeling autumn breeze;

Floating bodice, dancing hem

Tantalizes bees.

Contemplating frost’s approach,

Knowing pending Fate;

Blooming, scorning all reproach –

Budding well won’t wait.
