A one night stand

It’s like snow in April
how the orchard cries
when shedding petals
to a night of frost
like the one-night stand
with someone
you had hoped to marry.

Ashes by Edvard Munch

You never know where a prompt will take you. Magaly wrote about the early bloom that often succumb to frost at toads.

  1. You really caught my attention with
    “like the one-night stand
    with someone
    you had hoped to marry.”
    Nicely done, Björn.

  2. Wow! This one strikes the very spot that hurts the most – Perfect. Perfect painting too.

  3. Beautiful words and imagery. It’s been snowing blossom in the breeze these past few days.

  4. The ‘one night stand ‘ grabs attention
    the fleeing lover could have stayed
    That’s how they do it in the song
    first a fleeting hint of goodbye

    I’ll read up on space time physics, I’m okay with four, or more dimensions. Cordinates x, y z, and time. Time seems to be corresponding with place. (“Name the time and place.”)
    Good prompt, Bjorn. Thank you.
