In a Petal

With the delightful dance
Of a summer breeze,
At the green ballet
Of the alluring willows,
The heat of my haste broke,
And I lay down
On the freshly mown grass,
Closed my eyes,
With my face

Towards the eternal sun,
And my inner storm
                   died away.

A few moments passed,
And now I was floating
In a petal of a red rose
On a clear, cool stream,
A stream
Void of thoughts,
Void of feelings.
