An Old Bible (Senryu)

by Hellon   Sep 19, 2014


A dry flower falls
from pages yellowed with age:
memories of you.

    I'm absolutely in love with this. With just these few words you've managed to create a whole scene. A lifetime, really. Just picturing when the flower was first given/put there, when the Bible was, perhaps, still new. You leave the reader wondering who the Bible/flower belonged to. A loved one? Mother? Grandmother? Lover or sibling?

    A sad, beautiful write.
    I always enjoy reading your work.
