Love in Waiting

Written this second Tuesday in August

Prompt of Love

 
stems in violet hues
rounded curves in glass and shadow
love in waiting
 
Writing Notes:
I had picked a large collection of summer time flowers and placed them in a clear glass vase of water.  Overnight the water had been dyed from the pigments in the flowers.  I took several photographs and enlarged them trying to enhance the view of the flower stems.  I was surprised to find what looks like a lady in a long dress standing on the right side.  This shadow brought me a gift today!
 
I.
stems in violet hues
rounded curves in glass and shadow
love in waiting
 
II.
scattered reflections in my day’s sun
examined in close meditation done
to discover questions and to find
answers waiting in mere words
longing to rework the unknown and to be heard
in some melody from the kind
of love that went
to the sidelines and remains now spent
 
III.
lost love
caring becomes heavy and strained
growing weary of heart break
how do we find our love again
starting over
 
can’t bear to hear the heavy silences
don’t want to feel the pain
can’t bear the loneliness
even when we are near
 
love is in waiting
sitting along the sidelines
all you can say is you want
to be left alone
 
i want to awake to star dust
of a midnight sky
dance in the moonlight
live within joyful moments
even in the full day’s sun
 
after a lifetime of now broken promises
all my thoughts and feelings collide
I melt into rounded edges
