couples in the park

couples in the park remind me of flowers in a garden idly kept,

romances blossoming in ideal opportunity

and impervious seeds sitting atop dry dirt,

ancient vines and trees untrimmed

the opulence of stubborn lilies

the fortunate neglect of quenched lavender bunches,

fruits fastened onto swaying branches

overlooking ponds of gingham,

admired, or abhorred, by solitary beasts, the different form
