Blossom Leaves
larrylark

There is nothing quite like
 1
driving through twilight on late Spring evenings
 2
as pear blossom, past its first bloom
 3
falls like snow in a moonlit blizzard
 4
then slips past.
 5
I am driving at speed: not a deliberate act.
 6
Its the way things stray from automatic mode
 7
when your mind is elsewhere and not on the road.
 8
 
 
I slow. Petals flow thick and fast.
 9
Soon chlorophyll flooded leaves darken,
 10
the park shrouded in summer’s sweat,
 11
blossom long swept aside.
 12
 
 
If only nature would maintain
 13
the dreamscape
 14
it so readily throws away.
