Narcissus

I wonder

if in a previous birth

I was a golden daffodil*

cozying in my plant-mother’s bosom,

and fluttering and dancing in joy,

among a host of my siblings and peers.

and didn’t I weave a dream

in him, a poet,

who would sketch me in his words

while he wandered lonely as a cloud.
