Tears of a Rose

Reflections dance here and there
across the waters pure
luring thoughts to once was love
of a butterfly
capricious in mood
…so flighty.

Love never says goodbye.

Passion showed in the reddest
red glow of heart’s and soul’s
on fire
every word and every line
a flame of deep desire.

hunger grows a chasm
a great divide
words now relegated to a
place of shrugged indifference

and, what of joy and sorrow
each a part of yesterday
(God grant there’ll be a tomorrow)
to get it right, again.

To ride the crest of waves
turn circles in a sea of air

watch lips open
… expectant

while petals await their first kiss of dew
to present them as gifts
from the heart
bequeathed as tears of a rose.

  1. Wowzers, this poem is beautiful, and hopeful..I, too, loved “love never says goodbye” and…..”gifts from the heart bequeathed as tears from a rose.” Wow!

  2. Beautiful words as usual Bren. You have a way of spinning out emotions that are wonderful in their essence.

  3. Wow passion and fire from you, what am I to do. Yes tomorrow I will get it wrong once more and tomorrow after that once again take the tour. Does tomorrow ever come or am I just stuck here with my little rhyming bum?..haha

  4. I really like this one. In fact, I think it I think it is one of my favorites of yours. I think there will be a tomorrow to get it right again. We have to believe that.
