A Chance Meeting With Splendor

Just happening by
She spies a hidden path
Light filtering its way
She is drawn to this place by unknown forces
She takes a chance
Gracing the sunlit path
Finding tranquility and serenity
Waiting for her there
Enraptured by loveliness
She hesitates to take a step further
The trees begin to blush in anticipation of her touch
With trembling hands she anxiously reaches out
She delicately grasps the new-found birth
Holding her breath
She is overcome with pleasure
She is delighted and finds her heavenly treasure
Bringing forth the branches closer
A profound sense of wonder overwhelms her
Fragrant overtures overtake her
She is witness to tiny buds aching to be born
Glorious little blossoms waiting to burst forth
Soon their mesmerizing scent will enrapture maidens
Who will come and dance beneath the fruitful boughs
Merriment and magic will in abundance fill the air
As the wind steadily gathers momentum
Older aging petals begin to leap in blissful measures
Into the cool soft breeze they dash
Floating gently to the ground
Bringing splendor all around
An enchanting world springs alive
With perfect pink petals dancing on the wind
Unaware of their purpose and intent
She finds herself holding onto hope
This path of delight brings healing and light
The trees curtsy and bring life anew
To the gentle soul who just happened by
