[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.
