Random Acts of Poetry: Petals


Petals

Gilded magnolias
nod on
the breath of
the fragrant
breeze
that tugs
confetti petals
from pop-corn
branches
and tosses them
white-pink-violet
against periwinkle blue
they twirl
and swirl
and fall
catch
and wink
in the light
like wedding party
flowers
caught
in the hands
of laughing
children
