sitting with others
she soon lost herself
in the crush of scented
lavendar and pink rose petals
gathered in a small echo of time

no longer participating
she simply moved with
the sway of varied winds
along the shoreline of
mystic rivers flowing

finding the knack
of effortless escape
became her redemption
in a homeland adrift

  1. I really, really like the flow of this. Especially “the sway of varied winds…” Just good stuff. Luck with a month of poetry. I salute you.

  2. effortless escape…I like that…there’s a sense of loss here, I think she’s missing someone or something very dear, reminded by the scent of flowers…a tender drift of words…

  3. Perfect metaphysical poem, Ms Pie. The title holds it all together and the moment is perfectly articulated in the poem.
