Lost In My Lost Cinnamon Dreams



Cinnamon memories catch my soul in snares as I trace in anguish the curve of your lips in a photo stained sepia with my tears - a thousand words spoken through my fingertips; wishing you to be the breeze teasing my hair or the sun on my skin after its eclipse, let mare’s tails twine us in a heavenly kiss -- cinnamon stirs my bittersweet reminisce. Susan Ashley May 9, 2019 ~ Third Place ~ Contest: Favourite Poem From May, 2019 Sponsor: Julia Ward ~ Second Place ~ Contest: May 2019 Premier (Max 8 Lines) Sponsor: Brian Strand *Mare’s tail: a long narrow cirrus cloud whose flowing appearance resembles that of a horse’s tail*

Cinnamon! Who would have thunk it? --Only a true poet would have thunk to convey romance -- albeit bittersweet -- with such a flavor. Congrats, Poetess Laureate!** I consider it the deepest privilege to be able to view your poignant, penetrating poetry. ~ Pepe Wolf **Not tongue-in-cheek
