Petals

Forepassed spring…

Fragrant florescent blossoms
which nurtured me with
gentle caress and
embraced me in
the sweet warmth of
the delicate folds of
their once vibrant,
velvety petals…
are all wilted and withered…

Pellucid petals
shed and shattered
swiftly carried away by the
relentless zephyrs
lost in the silhouettes of time….

a sudden tinge of pain
a flush of grief from the
rheumy eyes
Just a trail of scented memories
left behind
where their golden dust shines….
