Duet in Red and fade…

fog-and-roses-006

 

They were bright red on the day he bought them

From the impossible shop in the mountains

So far away.

Like her throat in the heat of passion

As their skins moved like silk

And their lips were liquid joy.

Now, faded, she gathers the leaves around their stems

Like a cloak over the beloved

As the colour, though not the memory

Fades…

They were bright red

On the day he bought them

On the day he died.
