Parchment Treasures


Still Life, 1670, detail by Jean François de Le Motte



Keepsakes
Run amok
Like our love
Memories
Fill parched pages
Ink smeared from salty tears
Long ago dried
But not forgotten
Never forgotten
Unedited
Raw feelings spread
Across the paper
By your hand
To me


Dana

  2. Oh, this is wonderfully written! The clever use of the word parched, which makes us think of parchment, ink and tears, such masterful use of language. I think this is my first time here, and what a treat! I'm going to follow your blog. :o)
