fragrant roses #poem #poetry

in town
gestures of disoriented lovers
vermeil of the candelabra in the sky
somebody gathers petals in a Spanish bowl
inaudible, your feelings skirmish
to escape your soul

a streetlamp dressed in purple looks at you
I lost the earrings that you gave me in the spring
a samovar exhales aroma of black tea
behold the time of you and me
debauchery in summer
fragrant roses

      Stay inspired. Looking forward to your next post.

      1. Andrew was the most destructive hurricane to hit Florida when you compare yesterday’s dollars to today.

        A couple of years later I visited Miami and fell in love.

        Your writing always flows so effortlessly. I hope to be able to write like that someday.

        Have a gorgeous day. Going to take a dip in the pool.

  3. Your poetry seems to consistently transport me to a warm, fragrant night, decorated with garlands of love and passion, bare arms and sun-kissed skin. Late dinners with those who love you, laughter or sorrow, love. The happenings between lovers and friends and whole communities, heavy and light…. music…. I spent some time in Spain, and this is where your poetry is often set in my mind. I feel like I get to go back there for a moment. It is so evocative G.

    I felt and inhaled the fragrance of this poem like I was there. These lines :

    inaudible, your feelings skirmish
to escape your soul
