Once upon a time we loved

Once upon a time we loved

7 April 2015



Birds nuzzled in pairs

As they basked in springtime sun

Their sharp beaks entwined

Like a thorn you, my twin, reached

Delving in my hidden suns


Seeds scattered on ground

Fed upon by winged ones

Wilted nurturing

Chest that consoled you once dried

Ne’er bosom you rested on


Birds flew to soft nest

That twig by twig they composed

Like an ode to love

Songs of yonder golden days

My fleeting thoughts keep astray


Moon and sun relayed

Lessons blue gold red glitter

Distant hearts throbbed still

Once upon a time we loved

Did we think of time’s decay?
