No one really knows the face
behind the garden gates, but
she smiles when the sun holds
her gaze. Eyes of ancient wonder
sing notes of blue upon the garden.
And when the leaves of fall crown her
gold, she holds it like it’s the last
she’ll ever know. Colors die,
cold creeps in, fades her into stone.
The flowers and sun betray her light.
She becomes invisible again.
Aw! This was a fine piece, but I feel bad for the subject of the poem. Feeling invisible is a rotten feeling to have.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, and, yes, feeling invisible is terrible.
Thanks, Mike, I needed that. Can I get another one?
Sarah, you can have all the hugs you want. I think you might be surprised by the combination of sincerity and intensity. There is little I wouldn’t do for you my talented, soulful, and truthful friend.
