They Still Remember

20180428_171709

The two of them still remember their first embrace, the smell of her hair

the strength of his shoulders, the softness of her hands

in his, he drew her closer as she enveloped him

pink petals floating, swirling around

their heads, landing so beautifully

so gently, barely touching

as they gave each other

their greatest gifts

their hearts,

underneath the cherry trees.

Yes, they still remember.

Love Still Lingers

20180424_135040

The simple yet sacred truth living

within the heart of a tulip

is that love still lingers,

flows within our beings

carrying us

far beyond the darkest ruins

of our world,

until we are refreshed.

It Was Very Good Indeed

100_5754

And the Lord God saw that His children were discouraged, divided

and some confused, so He spoke into the soil, breathed

into the air, and called forth the rain. And soon

hope came displayed in green plants, with daffodils,

tulips, and even the great chorus of azaleas.

And smiles returned to all the people,

so God saw that it was good,

it was very good indeed.
