You said no.
You turned away.
You left the gift just
barely opened.
You kept the distance
far off bay.
Had you not seen
its sheer perfection?
Had you not known
what it can do?
I shake my head at this
refusal. I almost laugh
at these known facts.
There has to be another
reason. Thank god it left
with stem intact.

    Nicely composed CLT. That’s like having somebody lick all the red off your candy. Bummer.

  • I just laughed out loud. Luckily, it’s not about me. Thanks for stopping in as always kind sir!

    that last line drew a small quick breath ;))
    perhaps it’s but a simple pause?
    perhaps a pause, and not refusal?
    perhaps instead intact, ….and growing?
    nice rolling write :)

  • THANKS so much Phil ~ I so appreciate your note and your visit…

    Who could turn away from you Cynthia? Surely not anyone in their right mind and surely not after reading this. As always your beauty shines through.

  • Oh no – it wasn’t about me – it was my observations after a friend shared some past experiences with me. I found the stories incredulous. You’re so galant though…x
