Early Bloom – Sean Smith


What was it that caused a stir,
a red bloom so early?
This was not a full flowering
at the height of the season.
And why were we silent
on that night, our voices
blind while our eyes
whispered goodbye?
As you hugged and held yourself
not quite together,
inwardly dissected.
Who would we be now if
you both remained complete?
But you splintered and silence
grew to fill the gap.
