Day Twenty-Two - #WoPoWriMo - I Came Home To Roses


Today I came home
to roses; the sort,
that mended everything, stood glittering
from the table top, as sunlight
on first days
of spring. They were red,
every one,
whispering their promises with silvered
tongues, changing
and bending a delicate one,
who felt as green
as their leaves.
With blooms soft and tender
as lovers speak, somehow I find,
your roses 
leave me weaker than a morning
sky… “Red,
red for love,” you tell me,
-       and I forgive –
“and green, like the colour
of your eyes.”
