They first begin to flower in the green house,
occasionally January .
The scent can only be described
at times, I drag a small stool
inside the greenhouse, and sit with the blooms until
the potent scent drives me away. Late Summer,
the fruit ripens . I rub the skin
against my skin,
and the essence of lime dives deep inside
Lime Tree, in full circle She comes.
