Scarlet #10 Poem a Day


Recommended Posts


Our secret slumbers
deep as the scarlet
of a rose, wrapped
in the velvet cloak
of time.

What was
but could not be
remains hidden
beneath cultivated soil.

Yet memories
of stolen moments past
ignite white-hot
in flushed dreams still.

This one spoke to me, Tink. As do many others, I think, I keep my passed loved ones in memory, visiting often with precious times.
