I Heard You Sigh, a poem

IMG_6253 (2)

 

Raise your petals,
gentle beauty
drink in the sun
on a lovely, spring afternoon
and perhaps later,
you shall taste the freshness
of tantalizing rain.
I shall linger here –
for a moment,
memorizing
the lines
the curves
the beauty of your face.
I shall leave not,
a trace untouched.
As you sit upon your branch
unassuming –
the delicate, woven fibers
of your being
have sung loudly to my heart
and even though I
shall eventually lose you
to winter’s kiss,
I shall always remember
these moments I lingered
with bated breath
and heard you sigh.
