A Blossom For Your Song: Poetry by Samantha Terrell

Samantha Terrell

A Blossom For Your Song

We discovered
Bossa Nova when
The forsythia and
Weeping cherry were
In bloom,
Outside the living room

Where you
Swirled me
Round – a blur of cream and blue
Upholstery –
Dips
And Spins

Made easy
On the hardwood floor.
You’ve always been a better dancer than me.
I’m a petal in your
Palm,
A blossom for your song.
