Fully dressed with flowers

Rounding a corner in the garden… the shock of seeing you. Fully dressed with flowers. The air electrified with quiet hum, an aura of deep, delicate, intimacy. I have walked in on you, walked in on a bridal moment. Shining bumblebees hover close to kiss the flowers, reverse back out into spring sky, flower upon flower no branch decipherable, only the paradisal weight of blossoms uncountable, and the halo of ecstasy I have stumbled into. I am taken in; transfixed. Flowers of benediction break out in answer in my heart.
