The World in Words: Lost in Purple

(Photo taken in Hayward, CA)

Lost in Purple
Lost, were my eyes as I stared into your field of purple flowers. 
Lost, were my ears as your blossoms whispered secrets in my hair.
Lost, were my hands as I traced my fingers across your stems.
Lost, were my lips as I named each petal after you. 

Lost, was my mind, when you planted flowers in my head.
Lost, was my heart, when you filled its chambers with your fragrance.
Lost, was my soul when you colored it purple and blue.
Lost, was I, when you blew away with the wind.
