Secret Feelings
 

Can you find her?
come on
try!

Today she’s hiding
behind
the silence.

But wait
before she’s exposed
listen as

air pants
of dizzy
passionflower

squelches
of silk screen’s
ravished rose

crinkles
of tulip petals
from tiptoes

pastel tremors
of blossoms
under cover

splashes
of sweet pea’s
secret places

chokes
of forget-me-nots
spitting blue

make
hide-and-seek
too easy.

Next time
her hiding place
forbids furtive sounds

where she’ll wonder
if last time
he


almost


whispered



her name




Shhhhhhhhh
