Poetry Train.

One Petal…

One perfect petal
Floating upon the water
Captured in one moment
All the beauty of time.

Drifting here and there
Reflecting in the black
obsidian liquid.
A blush of pink.
A hint of white.

The current flows around
the edges
Bringing peace to the journey.
The perfect petal follows the river,
Allowing the water to guide it to its destiny.

    While I love your poem (I always do) I have to say that…

    “I’m lonely, cowboy.”

    …just about broke my heart.

  4. Susan Helene Gottfried says:

    I like the color contrast you’ve got going here, TA. The white and pink against the black… Very lovely and vivid.

  5. T.A.Chase says:

    It fit my mood as well, Melissa. I’m in a ‘let’s see what life brings me today’ mood.

  6. Melissa says:

    You’re right TA. Sometimes we do have to drift, wander til we find our path. This was the perfect poem for my mood today.

  7. T.A.Chase says:

    Thanks, Rhian. Sometimes we just have to drift to find what we’re meant to be.
