Flowers for you.

flowers for you

bursting

like a ghost;

red and white violets

that were in a market shop

your eyes hunted them

and they were yours;

as the street calls out

in loneliness

the telephone replays

with your voice

engraved

in a blue marble vase

by the sea

gone.

    I felt some sadness here, but loved the imagery of ‘like a ghost; red and white violets”!
