Shadow of our love.

You wore silk

A delicate shade

Ivory

Gold brocade

Your veil feigning innocence

You captured my heart.

 

Nylon shift

Hides your sagging form

Rings forlorn

Scars are worn

On old withered hands laid bare

Our love lingers on.

This is for MTB at d’Verse where we are using the form Shadorma.

To me the form suggested shadow and I thought about how as we age we still keep our shadow of youth.

  1. What a lovely photograph, and how like children you two looked! You have a unique take on the prompt and I’m grateful for your contribution. Especially these lines:
    “Scars are worn

    On old withered hands laid bare

    Our love lingers on.”
