A Gentle Touch of Love

Whenever I see
a surfeit of fresh petals
fallen on the earth
from their mother flowers,
I notice the same sparkle
and smile
of hues and fragrance
that they had
in their full bloom days,
but they fade early
due to separation…

I pick up some
of those beautiful creations
to keep in a pot of water
and I feel freshness again
on their faces
with a gentle touch of love,
but yet after a few days
they fade into oblivion…

…but not those live petals
fallen, rejected and dejected
roaming here and there
in and around us,
who also need
just a gentle touch of love,
to survive their autumn
not to fade or fall again…
