Poetry: “Replanted”

In my life apart from living
I climbed branch to beam
Balancing between
Valances, vaulting
Off valiant verity
Gazing though
Sugar-spun glimpses
Of windowsill geraniums
Viewing vinous virility

Ambling along
Alacritous alleyways
Of orbiting orchard
Aureola
Bobbing for apples
On grappling hooks
Baited by charismatic
Clerisy
Whole-swallowing
Bargain books
Fogging up
Faded tunes
On looming afternoons

Looking in
Opportunity hard-knocked
To scheme-dream the theme
A recycled plot
