Clearly a Vague Recollection


Clearly a Vague Recollection


The way she wore that plain white

cotton sheet

was really kind of cool, and neat ..

A real turn on too

don’t you think, fresh from the bed

like that, and jeez ..

With all those ribbons in her hair

and an opal in

each lobe, of perfect shell like ears ..

She trailed

that makeshift shawl behind her

all but naked ..

And quite unashamed, with nothing

more to lose or fear,

or even hide, oh’ yes indeed, it was

then she turned

and said, come to me darling

smelling of time itself

old clocks and magnificent cathedrals ..

Yes come to me,

for it is time to listen, watch and learn ..

Since this, dear heart

is how it works when broken, and you

my lord shall surely

sleep safe, sound and well tonight ..

      Great read Nev - had me pondering why the draped female who wanted her man smelling of time. Hhmm - though with no clue this feels like a Nev-kinda- dream woven with special threads of intrigue - - but after several reads I see a near-broken relationship on the way to be mended. Hope this detective work hits one or two nails tho' still in awe of your take on those clear but vague recollections............. x

          This poetry was a mystery
          From yearnings
          To love
          To thrill
          To further emotions
          Was it the confidence of the lady
          Or the virtue of patience
          When broken hearts could move with time
          Truly lost in words dear Nevilleโ€ฆ
