fallen white camellia

she sits under the 
white camellia tree
blossoms strewn across
the grass
a melody floating from her
wooden flute
and tears on her cheeks
as she remembers 
who whittled it for her

he always loved those flowers
falling off the tree as full
blooms
the camellias remembered ever
in their prime

rather than a petal dropping
here and there
until finally
the beauty is
stripped
away 
so gradually fading
that once it 
disappears
nobody notices
its absence

she remembers her
time
with her father
how short it was
how it left a hole
in her heart
that will never
heal

but the melody
soothes
the ache
just a little
just enough to make it
bearable 

so she reminisces
under the 
white camellia tree

she delves
ever farther
into her memories
of him
as if strolling through the
forest
going deeper and deeper
trying to find the heart of the
wood
trying to find her way back
home

but she can never quite
escape
the reality
of the world beyond

where she is present

and he is not.
