Lavender Oil, Epsom Salts, and Limoncello

One of the many foolish
joys of being an old
man married to a young

woman is allowing
oneself at last small discoveries
of the vast treasure horde

of lovely feminine things,
like a delicious afternoon soak
in an overfilled tub fragrant

with scents of organic
lavender oil and rosemary,
buoyant with epsom salts

as the steam rises through
the open window into
a windy blue spring.
