“Florida” dVerse Open Link #82

Sunlight saturates jonquils and lobelia
in your yard, people sit in lounge
chairs or rockers cupping caudles.

It’s sterile here and my sandals
slide on the tiled floor as the
air conditioner wisps alertness.

I enter your room,
it’s always similar —
you, perfectly manicured
and smiling.

Our conversations alight
intrigue, shared stories,
tea and time.

My days jounce sadly if I forget
these jonquils, lobelia and sunlit temples.

    the impression is just right:
    some V cool layers in this stanza too

    It’s sterile here and my sandals
    slide on the tiled floor as the
    air conditioner wisps alertness.
