Gumdrops and Glitter

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

the sea rises over my heart
while I lean into love

like a fairytale, made up of gumdrops
and glitter, which never stops

enticing
the senses

even with a skewed perspective

created from the past
when flowers didn’t bloom, rather
they died fast

entering my heart in one moment
I remember the day

a swoon came to

teaching me more about the love I have for you
like the dew

upon the petals that finally grew
that’s when

I knew
