The Scented Path

 The Scented Path

She idles

Along the scented path


Pierces the darkness

To the forest floor

Petals are strewn

Beneath her feet


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
