The petals unfold 

the breaking bloom of 

hairline cracks in fragile glass

the ringing tones - singing 

of friction pressed upon the lip

of silence

speechless words unspoken

moving eyes - stare back 

a multitude of gazes

fractured - the crisp sound crack

of shattered glass

These entrancing words remind me of the opening bars of a sonata, a prelude, leaving the reader with a powerful sense of expecting the arrival of something quite delicate and romantic.

Thank you for this
