Soft and mysterious

Constant change of mood
The last piece of satin red petal
With hint of jazz 
Morph into a smooth abscission
Like a saxophonist flirting the soft piano

I close my eyes
Red petals bursting up the piano keys

So often I listen to it for a second
Hold the words in the palm of my hands
Before it slips through my fingers
Always the river
