And They're Still Blooming



                                            Your magnolia tree
                                            filters the afternoon sun—
                                            I carved our names in its trunk
                                            Those beloved flowers
                                            impregnate the sudden breeze—
                                            You are miles away from here

    Smells of youth, loss and mourning. Young love lost is the worst and so often the deepest cut!!! Always leaves a deep scar and great sense of loss. Great poem.. A10.

    OMG...I love this poem, and your picture just inhances!!! Hey, by the way, I had a great laugh that you remembered my postman!!! Yikes!! Oh lordy..., and that Adam and Eve contest.... fun, but it's a wonder I didn't scare you off!!!! Such a stalker I was...and what a terrible free verse (or whatever)....not exactly my greatest effort, but you, I must say, were a great sport!! I'm so glad to see you back!! :)
