in loose and ruffled opulence
fleetingly glimpsed
then shyly disappear
a landscape
richer than antique brocade
a swarming galaxy
of bright gold motes
down a slanting shaft
of sunshine floats
whence scatterings
of petal showers
a carpet soft and deep
spread upon the ground
all evaporate
before they wither
yet beauty
like time
travels with you
