Petals in the wind

I ran at the sight of the petals
Which swiftly flew past me,
In my little shoes I chased it
Thinking that an adventure this will be.

They floated,all purple against the sky
With no obstacles to block their way,
I ran over the hill and tried to reach
But by then they were further away.

The little petals danced to the tunes of the wind,
Every step they could master .
Which made me want them even more
And dashed behind them,faster.

When they did a glissade
And descended to about my height,
I jumped and caught few of them
My eyes twinkled with delight.

I gently opened my fist
But they seemed as lifeless as could be,
So I tiptoed and gave them back
To the wind where they'd be free.

They whirled around me in a circle
To this day in my memory this experience is pinned,
At last they left me with a magical fragrance
The purple petals in the wind..
