To where do petals fall?


To where do petals fall?

To the east or the west?

To your feet or my chest?

To the flowing water as clear as day,

Or the serene night sky-filled milky way?

To the minds of the doubtful,

Thinking and tinkering on essential oils?

Or the thoughts of romanticists,

Writing aloud italicized, hopefully a wonderful prose?

 

To where do petals fall?

To the grounds to be meshed and be part of a past?

To the air to be taken on journeys without avast?

To great lands with great people and great scenery,

Or to the everyday wonders you failed to see?

To the lakes so still, making moon whee with envy?

For it thought it has a friend as pretty as she.

 

To where do petals fall?

To gather wisdom’s tall?

To escape pedants’ thrall?

To where do petals fall?
