Lingering/Photography


IMG_2199

Clinging, reaching for shards of light,

the kiss of morning dew to brighten her

cheek.

Her innermost self fully revealed,

no longer concealed behind the layers,

 white.

Soft, she whispers to the coming night,

“Shall we dance into the Milky way

together?

Sadly she gazes back over her delicate

shoulder with sweet sorrow to leave this life, a

treasure.

The others, still so fresh and new, brilliant

they dance and laugh and revel in the

days.

Upon her cheek a dewy tear glistens

in the glow of sunset’s kind crimson

rays.

Takes her gently by the hand and

bids her follow, follow, and mourn not

death.

Beauty lives forever,

the memory of

Rose’s sweet scent

lingers.

    1. Thanks so much Deborah. It expresses how I feel at times. Exposed-as the ability to mask the real me falls away, things no longer disguised by the veil of youth. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
