Rings

But wasn’t it?
The beautiful bunch
of wildflowers
set with care
in the center
of the kitchen table,
in a mason jar, blue,
where it left a ring,
where the water
spilled over its sides
and the old maple,
now a table,
sucked up it,
and sucked it dry,
like a piece of lumber,
who was once a tree,
recalls a long drink
of rain.
