‘There is something of the plant about you’ by Melina Bunting

There is something of the plant about you

I once caught you sitting on your own
face raised to the afternoon light
the same way a flower opens its petals
for the sun’s benediction.  

At home, the golden hour
lays its head on my desk. I turn my
palms face up into the warmth
and think of you.
