Blame The Wind

Blame the wind that tosses the leaves
bares the undersides of my passion
pale with desire,  longing for lips moist
the marigold dips under its own weight
longing hidden under furls of orange robe
blame the wind it doesn’t toss the skirt
to bare the undersides of my craving.

(Day 27: ‘Blame the _________’ poem for 2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge)
