sleepy heads

lavender – photoart & poem – ©2018 Laura Granby

it goes to the head
a purple hued perfumery
not lascivious lilac or violets in the shade
but hot lavender trails for devoted bees
do they seem somewhat serene after supping ?
or is all this aromatherapy mythtaken?
a sort of lisping grasp of facts from fictioneers
surely it is just a dream of summer
pillowed in the grass
narconerverous – if ever such a word
could make this scent a somnolent
