Mexican Limes

They first begin to flower in the green house,

typically, mid-December,

occasionally January .

The scent can only be described

as Powerful…

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

my brain.

Lime Tree, in full circle She comes.
