Petal (1st note)

A flower petal had fallen off its tree
To fall toward me
To come close
And land on my chest
And slip between my small breast
I felt lucky
Because I wanted to catch a petal
With my hand
With my fingers
To feel its texture
I’d given up without trying
I hoped it found comfort in me
I hoped it loved the scent of me
Because it must have missed being a flower high on a tree
I loved it
It must have loved me too
