A Carpet of Petals

by Maria Voelker
(Wales, UK)

A gentle breeze, so softly flows

to bring with it, what has been sowed;

From trees and grasses, flowers too

in spring the petals, after bloom;

Drift with the wind, across the land

to where He guides His gracious hand;

They reach the ground and settle in

to form a carpet, made so thin;

I walk across in pure amazement

what’s laid before me, in it’s placement;

In time it will but disappear

for which we long another year;

And so the cycle is complete

the carpet forms again indeed
