Like a whisper

tissue is painted with purpose,

silk spun from crisp cuts,

white scented with sapphire

parading into prussian

(fragile of frame and filigree),

like a thought

an image opens, a petal unfolding,

shades seep into substance

as the edges fade

(how quickly we fall to forgetful)




a little longer.
Thoughts tied in twists of emerald


simplicity on a simple stand,

in a liquid light

and the memory

leans in.
We are more fragile

than we know.

We could be more lasting

but only time will tell.
Not everything will linger

on after our whispers

fall to a fade…
