petals made of love

by Jeff Flesch, Monthly Contributor
site: Develop. Inspire. Transform

I sit atop the river delta, wondering about
the scene

it is a
myriad
in-between

the light
casting off
in the distance
playing with the

stars in the sky, sheltering the moon in a
blanket disguised

I rise, and

make my way down, as the cavern comes
close

always
looking up, noticing the
moons love

sheltering this planets’ stone rose

as gold shimmers the enclaves, and wonder
tries to escape me,
holding
tight

I rely on
that inner-guide,
realizing mistakes made

clearing the way to play

in the dazzling night, you, me, and the trees,
fill the earth with
doves

and
petals
made of love
