Poetry

Moving On

Flowers on Facebook —

Violet, red, yellow, orange —

splashed a welcome

into a garden never visited

 

Then... they stopped

faded like the fragrance

of my childhood.

Time had put a halt

 

Long gone days —

curtains drawn

on past hurts,

past wrongs.

 

Only memories remain

of the love, the warmth

the friendship

that was sought…

 

The last song of an exotic bird called Nostalgia.
