Lost Color (Senryu)

by Star   Jun 24, 2019


I pressed the last red
flower you gave me, in a
book I barely read.

    I think you do not seem quite ready to forget this person and so, you press the last flower left from this relationship. I wonder if, in 20 years time, if it falls from your book will you remember who it was from?

      This is random, and it’s really good I can imagine the poem on the empty page:) Thank you so much!

    Hello Star,
    Short, sharp, shock indeed. Acute as it is poetically brilliant. A succinct gem in the art of literature.
    Very well done.
    Regards, Tony
