lilacs again... lilac haiku

after two years, our baby lilac blooms again in a mass of changing purples.


i am become all sweetness
i sigh with flowers
a slow push of hues

purple seeks lilacs
deep and full of fruit
slowly color fades to scent

so like these lilacs
i am deep and dark
warm light gathers to softness

flood the air with scent!
i lose consciousness
to all but blooming lilacs
