Lay me in a field of wildflowers, that I may bask in the honeyed scent of many-colored blossoms, bright canary yellows, gentle lilacs, smooth ivories, pale pinks and vivid oranges, deep indigos and ravishing reds, wet with fresh dew they glisten against my skin, that I may dream of a place where Spring is everlasting, brilliant and beaming the sun, delicate warmth seeping through, melting me from woman to earth, that I may breathe in the soil and exhale the rain, tears flowing untethered, the soft melodies of my soul molding together my many lands in glorious arrangements, untamed and free as they frolic in the April breeze.
