blossoms crush
beneath my feet
my heart is heavy,
skips a beat
I hope I do not tread
those coloured blossoms dead
for blossoms are by far
to me
more beautiful than e’en
the tree
from which they fell
in silent grace
as if to place
a path for me
through dappled sunlight
dancing free
their beauty
takes my breath away
tactile tender trodden petals
playing on my skin
I wonder
if it is a crime
to wear them down so thin
