Apple Blossom

Petals scatter on the pavements of Spring,

New life’s awakening,

The light shining through a gap in the curtains,

Suggests a blue-sky kind of day,

I want to tear down the curtains,

Let the light shine down on my maudlin heart,

Prise open that slow ticking clock,

And set free the butterflies,

Unfurl my sorrows like buds,

Turn them into something beautiful,

Unravel my confusion like a fern,

Face the day with outstretched arms,

I’ll dance barefoot,

Beneath the apple blossom,

As nature’s confetti rains down,

Soft and slow.
