In the gentle fold of petals


Between the miracle of petals

form tears of diamond dew,

like the passing of grief they settle

and quench my thirst for you.


On a sideboard by a window

sad blooms toward the sun,

one earthly journey ended

one lonely walk begun.


But wilt as may, I'll wilt away

and fall with withered time,

though never fades one single day

when your heart beat with mine.

Thanks Ray, Tommy, GL and Kate,

I stripped my earlier comment down so Ray yours reads a little strange, no matter it makes sense to me. I thought I'd pare the comment back a little as it wasn't meant to be directed at anyone, I know how easily things can be taken personally when they are not necessarily meant that way.

Anyway, I was feeling somewhat romantic and reflective and this came out, it seems sad but also almost a declaration of dedication to the memory of a lost one.

I agree with you about profusions of words for the their own sake - unless they are to sheath a message like the shell of a bullet, or perhaps the hypnosis of charm. Poetry like other art can be self serving, and we are all often indulgent of that. Sadly when you experience something truly and deeply you don't really need more than the living breath that carries it. I think this poem demonstrates that.

I'll get my coat as usual.
