Love Holds Dear

This is an older piece – recently re-worked. I still like it, and found it worth posting.

Love Holds Dear

Curled in a fever,
Wrapped in a blanket made of stone;
Made to look like art,
Made to look organic.

Nature coils an invitation.


Autumn has it’s own way
of defining the moment;
In leaves, in grass,
In mornings that could never disgrace,
Never shame.

I hold the memory like a well worn scarf;
Inhale the familiar scents.
Wonder at how I could keep
Something so old,
so tattered, around for so long.

I keep the stone the same way,
But the pond is it’s reminder of family.

I splash,
and love holds dear the pebbles.

  1. Beautiful Trish. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi, I am a student from a netcourse called VHS. An assignment in this class is to find a poem online. I came across your’s and I really like it. In this assignment I am supposed to ask you for permission to use the poem for my netcourse. Anyway, I like your poem a lot, and it’d be helpful if I could use it, thanks!
