The Orchard

Spread the love

As time arrived for us to move forward;
The pleasant evening coming to a close.
The air laden with the scent of fresh apple rose;
Travelling across the blooming orchard.

Prefer to hold onto this hand;
Gazing deep into those eyes.
Knowing time so fast it flies;
Never knew it would be so grand.

Seeping through the closed eyelid;
Tears like drop of white pearls.
Staining the long velvet glove.
Bursting out the words she hid;
She whispered now into his ear.
As stars shine in the skies above.

    I am happy at this story ending at a note of a beautiful beginning. Gosh I’m just a romantic at heart. It was quite interesting, the narration. You told the story, yet let us slip into the events, with you when you changed tenses.
    Thank you for linking up at Monday WRites.
    Have a good week.
    Much love…
