Garden of dreams

The garden is familiar.
Previously planted footprints
adorn the
green grass.

Trees reach so tall
she envies the gallantry of their branches.
Birds chirp with a joy so contagious
the apples of her cheeks
into a smile.

The sky is so clear it’s blinding.
A breeze creeps softly over her skin.
The sun is seductively warm;
a red dress in a field of yellow
brown eyes in the sun,
coconut milk and macadamia.

The garden is familiar.
Only this time,
she needn’t leave.
