scent of a goodbye

dying colors of the day
as blossoms fall at twilight
fragrance of bruised petals
the scent of a goodbye.

  1. Love the imagery you create with the “fragrance of bruised petals” being “the scent of goodbye”.
    The way I interpret it, and if I’m close then it’s something I believe, that, there is a certain beauty in the way things come to an end just like there is love in letting go as well. No?

  2. WOW!
    “fragrance of bruised petals
    the scent of a goodbye”

    Seriously brought a tear to my eye.
    My first 2 inspired by yours, the others been in my archives since December 2016

    made me feel lonely sad night
    read loved and reread again
    loneliness beat a shout heard
    my wife not asleep
    —-
    dusk settingsun goodbye day
    dark clouds fly dappling moonlight
    shadows dance to subtle base
    natures orchestras
    —-
    frantic gasps voice begging help
    inadequate attendants
    forlorn now long drawn-out breaths
    stranded whale lays dead
    —-
    bird cherries not yet in bloom
    awaiting spring winter still holds
    feed the birds keeps them happy
    flu still prevailing

    My first WP published dodoitsu, still not sure?
