          amethyst crystals in her medicine pouch /s african violets only the sounds of ancient rattles and bells /k moonlit walk cascading grape vines in silhouette /cr alone with my reflection in the wine glass /s outside the soup kitchen plum blossoms drift/kk stars at dusk a scent of lavender at the open gate /cr lilacs on her dresser grandma's talcum powder /s wrapped in a fine linen hanky his purple heart/kk sunday dinner the eggplant marinating in marsala /cr 'here we go 'round themulberry bush' stirring our tea /s at the disco white under black lights/kk playing the barney song again and again /cr
