Far From The Crowd

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

I might seem a statue
placed in this field
to guard the wild blossoms and grass;
but look closer,
a chiffon hat and dress
could turn me vaporous, lavender girl
who assumes the shade
of bird, sky or twilight.

Yet, I remain figural,
a guest who left the party
seeking privacy. Still
the garden voices linger --
their whispers blown and scattered
like dandelion ash. They drift

past sleeves and hemline,
the brim of a bonnet . Beneath
you can perceive my face,
features balanced, their tight grace
ready to catch any rumors
that might slip under the skin,
my earlobes dangling pearl.
