Fragment


A dream I can’t remember
that makes me think of home

the hush of death in a dark,
dark room — petals black

that somehow glow
in the palms

of cold,
still hands

Oh this is so beautiful. I had to read it several times before these words unveil their secret. And i have to read it again. Ofcourse. Beautiful.

Thank you. I’ve read it several more times too, and now it isn’t hard to imagine it on a gravestone.

Yes, it would be touching on a gravestone. I love to wander old graveyards.....
