Heart & Petals

When autumn winds blow

stealing summer’s golden heart

petals drift earthwards.

 

Flower heart fallen

petals scattered in the wind

the year is turning.

 

Scatter thistledown

tear the petals from the rose

break my heart in two.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
