Love Notes to the Peony Shedding Petals


_DSC0846_newTo she who waited or appeared to refuse to open to the world
her soft yet firm “thump” burst from her glass encasement

She was open yet broken at the same time

With a stop, stare, wonder
I questioned…

When did she decide to open?
Why did she decide to burst forth and fall apart in such a way?

 None of these questions really mattered as I pushed away from the table and walked over to look at the bundle of petals that detached from her with a level of admiration, _DSC0851_new

 

 

It was then that I realized that this was indeed what I liked most about her

 she did not try to hide in shame as she fell apart in my kitchen
