night rose…

night rose

when the mind
retreats
from the day
and
each sound
steps onto
center stage
then
the petals
of the night rose
begin
to bloom
by
moonlight
petals
hold
more than
memories
spirits
have been found
to live there
warm breaths
of lovers
and kisses
as well
gentle embraces
ah
i sense
your doubt
of these things
but
if you wake
in the darkness
take a moment
and breath deeply
and
you will see
that i am right
and all
will be gone
by first light

  1. Oh my goodness, I can feel this poem, I feel the warm breaths, the kisses the gentle embraces and watch them disappear with the dawn, so moving! I haven’t felt a poem in a long time, thank you!
