A Love Poem By Elijah Rokos

A mouthful of wildflowers
a mind full of tea leaves,


Sun brewed tea
lavender and lemon,
ice cubes in the swimming
pool, the bird’s song pecking,
off key and off beat.


An open sail
billowing in the breeze
of the Chesapeake Bay,
the smell, the smell,
the salt and the sting.

A mouthful of hornets
a mind full of poison ivy,


Elijah Rokos is an English major. He enjoys tea, gardening, and reading.
