Leaving the restaurant, needs time alone. He spots a tree just outside the garden.
Too many people around, tired, frustrated, sitting to think. Damn!
Someone is coming out from the building. Hopes whoever it is does not notice him.

Pained cranium swells
concrete jungles unknown steps
Angers selfish mind.

Really does not want to be bothered, not now. She walks slowly, shoulders bent,
fatigue shows.
Wanting to leave. Held in place, he watches. What keeps him anchored.
Draws his attention.

Time worn silhouette
Curiosity saunters
Mounts with each aged stride.

Soft music wafts gently in air. He a college student and she's old, life spent.
In gardens center she sways. The spell has been cast, mesmerized.
She glides, graceful and dreamlike. Who is she waltzing? Dance of fantasy or memory?

Ages wonderment
Hypnotic vision behold
Questions unanswered

Movement catches eye, turning sees young man in uniform, who smiles and nods.
Heading for garden in long sure strides. The dance of lovers lost commences.

Loves apparition
Picturesque enlightenment
Shocking disbelief

What he thought was worn and ugly, is changed. In awe frozen, a beauty to behold,
enchanting youthful wonder.

Miracle of sight
Transpired past echoes
Perfection shining

The spell is broken when final note plays. she's falls to the ground,
lifeless she lays. He frantically runs to her side. Holding her hand,
She smiles, serenity on her face.

Illusion shattered
Misgiving fearful ending
Calmness caresses

'Look beyond outer core to find beauty within' She says
'Life beholds many wondrous things.'
Slipping into her lovers final embrace she leaves him. With wisdom shared.

Final enchantment
Dieing words forever linger
Answers precious kept.
