In the land that love forgot
lit by the light of an autumn moon
Memory stirred and held a thought
of those once upon a time days
When roses
rich with red

Wind-strewn days with fallen apple
air fresh with suckled honey
When once You and I loved
smitten

immersed in this infinity
enamoured
Longing
in those autumn days
Regaining in their wistful hours
what summer once had brought us 
All now lost in time’s story
But always and forever 
written on memory’s scroll.

Petals and Parasols – #NovemberWriting #poetry

Be sure and read Dorinda’s – PETALS AND PARASOLS

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

Broken pieces of her life, scattered, tattered

Pressed between the pages, sheltered only

By the pale ivory lace, of a faded parasol

This, her only regret, leaving this treasure

Far behind, knowing, it was the last connection

To a life, she no longer cherished, wilted petals

Pressed between pages, the broken pieces of her life

With the cold air

Raindrops cling to the trees

In small fragments of winter’s tears

And freeze

Quagmire

Confab With Me

All those long standing walls,
those determined thoughts
the promise to never meet
the grit not to be deceived
vanishes, the moment I heard her voice
