The Scented Path


 The Scented Path

She idles

Along the scented path

Sunlight

Pierces the darkness

To the forest floor

Petals are strewn

Beneath her feet

Spring

Has done her flowering

And taken leave

There is birdsong

On the breeze

Songs of love

Weaving beauty

To the end

Dreams weigh heavy

In the air

She reaches out

To hold them

But they disappear

In the warmth

Of her tears

So now

She thinks of him

Along the scented path

And journeys on

Alone
