A Beautiful Life

by Ben Pickard   Oct 20, 2020


~~

Marigolds were yours.
Hyacinths were mine.
We shared the hills and mountaintops
And elderberry wine.

Dreams were never false.
Nightmares never stalked.
And when our love discovered us,
Its tongue was never forked.

Swathes of beauty reigned.
Shadows lost their form.
The sun would shine all through our lives
Before the break of dawn.

But now the winter comes,
Where beauty yet is found.
We need to understand that life
Can thrive beneath the ground.

~~
