One Minute Till Sunset


Damned frangipani streams of misery do ripple his heartstrings with injury. Menagerie of scented memories infuse his mood with lost love reveries. Luscious sepals once had held his heart, her early twilight darkness did impart, mute mockingbirds in grief no longer sing, sunset is bleeding last vermilion fling. Ancestral home on blissful breeze he flies pellucid prayers and soul ascend pearl skies.
