lost in lilacs

i think lilacs
are one of my favourite things
about spring

i cannot get enough of them
their colour
their fragrance
their texture

as long as they are in bloom
i will have a vase full
on as many tables
as possible

one favourite memory as a kid
was mom and I with clippers in hand 
going to the neighbour's house
down the street
to cut lilacs

and fragrant bouquets
in every corner.

Mom and I still do this-
just a little more sneaky 
these days

( padding around in my
girlfriend's backyard
with clippers in hand
while she is 

Another slice of heaven.
