Peonies, My Dear

While Driving in the car

Actively thinking about crashing

I drive up a hill


Variety of bumblebee

Whizzing in the air

Tumultuous, my mind is

But, cover it in dozens of peonies

My, mind, will be good, as new

But, when they disappear

My world rumbles with these

Unwanted fears

So, cover me in a dozen peonies

My dear…
