Neville

Paper Cups

Paper Cups

 

Some things

just never

seem to change

do they

my petit fleur ..

You see

back then,

in those very

early days

I do so distinctly

recall

that everything

was once

a certain kind of

special

Unblemished  

and still white

Yes …

there we both

were

Bathing

in a blank page

and sipping

warm rice wine

from

supermarket

paper cups

Hardly daring to

press pause

and likewise,

unprepared

to wait for night

Just like always …

Do you

by any chance

remember too …

    So rich with imagery this write - it cleverly takes events in back- then and romantically stirs such sweet memories - - oh yes Nev. that lady in question having read this would well remember - methinks..........x

          With a scene addressed so well I'm sure she will have quite a coloured memory of it.
          Love the way you create with a pastiche of the actual scene.

            Ah, yes. the hurried emotions of youth. Surely, she would remember the wine and the frenzy. A small snip of lost emotions that are recalled with a passion that sweetens the recollection and perhaps, the taste of the wine. Loved it. - Phil A.

                  this be those kinda whispered 'messages, in a bottle'
                  that had the Helen's of this world - abandon
                  their loyalties: for a heart's vehement desires
                  and wars that launch timeless tales
                  upon that unconquerable sea, of poetic ink..
                  A great write my friend, wonderfully executed pacing and flow

                  • Neville



                    .............. in this great auction hall of life, as we know it .. this humble would be scribe and poet does thank thee my very fine literary friend for submitting such a heart-warming bid ...............

                    ... a series of very fond thank you's shall undoubtedly follow L.B ..

                    ... Neville
