I Remember

When you said good-bye,
I remember
your teary eyes
And how your warm fingers
my shivering arms
and then slipping, they drifted away
like faded dying petals
Falling, Falling
from a blood red rose,
whose heavy fragrance
in the bittersweet air.

  1. That’s a heart-breaker of a poem, Linda, using touch and smell. I love the contrast of warm fingers and shivering arms, and the lingering bittersweet fragrance of the rose.

  2. In such short, definitive span, you took me to a world you created with your words. There, I could see, touch and taste like I never did before. Thank you for creating such magic.
