Stray Petal

STRAY PETAL

I spy
With my
Little eye
…..Little I
…..Little I
Stray petal
Detached

Drifting by
Borne on a brook
…..Feeding a river
…..Feeding an ocean
Relentlessly surrendering
Substance

As might some hardback
Missing its jacket
…..Transient
Yet its content
…..Intent
…..Intact
Awaiting rediscovery
And rebirth

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.
