#272 of 365 – “rain petals”

“rain petals”

(being in love)

 

life blurs

around

the edges

softens

into pastels

 

clouds

open,

rain

petals

luxuriate

the earth

 

heart stops

beating

blood,

enchantment

pulses

instead

 

there is

no past

that matters

no future

you can’t see

dawning

and the hours

chart

a well worn path

between

ecstasy

and longing

    Nicely done, Merle! Oh, to be young and in love again. Of course, being old and in love isn’t half bad!
