National Poetry Month: Black Narcissus

Today begins my annual participation in National Poetry Month where I write a poem a day for the month of April.  So here’s today’s offering…

Black Narcissus

 

Velvet and ebon petals hide

all those evening tear stains

in the shadows of the past

 

Such sweet graceful delicacy,

above that wind-blown pain

velvet and ebon petals hide

 

Rare and aloof, untouchable

A dark beauty perched atop

all those evening tear stains

 

Abide eternal in silence

and where footsteps walk

in the shadows of the past
