[Inspired by “Stockholm Sweetnin'”, performed by Scott Hamilton, Jasper Lundgaard, Jan Lundgren, and Kristian Leth.  Available to listen to from Spotify’s Jazzy Dinner playlist:]

The way the petals

opened out, revealing secrets

hidden before in blush pink embrace.

The way the vase

captured light, sharing memory

of his kiss, reflected through the room.

The way she felt,

now, alone.  Bliss, yes; it was,

bliss at last, still fragile – like glass.

But as close to happiness

as she’d ever known.
