Love’s lost lustre: (1 Viewer)

Friends of WF
heat captures the leaf
curls the edges
reminiscent of the fingers

of a child
trying to catch hold
but mother’s finger slips free

withholds forever a state that
does not change
it is change we fight against

pretend the dream of heaven
like that leaf, a belief
green will be contained forever

as the leaf loosens its hold
floats in the spiral towards the ground
kisses down, silent promise broken

there is only one way this ends
a return to minute dreams
of what we could have been
