Petals On The Bed.


 

 

.

one moment

random

one message

read

one memory

kindled

one spirit

fed

all reason

ceasing

figments

fill the head

.

one soul

renewed

one mind

misled

one hope

abandoned

one word

unsaid

two hearts

in pieces

petals

on the bed.

    1. Thanks, OF. It’s not too forced, then? The original left out the whole rhyming stanza about reason and figments, but I felt I had to honor form for form’s sake. Ending the thing with a metaphor seemed too jarring, too “stand alone”…….some pieces write themselves; this was not one of them..

            1. Poor cat, I let her out, but I waited to see her off, and she came back in – unusual normally, but there is an amorous male cat been hanging around this last few days, he’s huge, and very much in love!! He sits outside and howls for hrs!
