Written for:  Carpe Diem #1065, Camellia


a camellia
floating in our conversation
unspoken thoughts
curved petals
from the camellia-scented candle
dripping wax
knocked off by rain
camellias bloom again
in the puddles

Here is my attempt:

petals folded
secrets will not be revealed
’til camellia blooms

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
