Upon the Morrow

Upon the Morrow

A Poem by Neville
"

I hope now I am exorcised, for these words they did long haunt me...

"

Upon the Morrow

 

Summer passed

Gentle as a minnow splash

Soft and almost silent

Yet still noticed

 

Dappled through

Deceptive, fractured light

Blinding as it fades

Yet still golden

 

Make no mistake 

The pulse he leaves behind

Does yet still cast

A warmth and glow

 

Whilst buried deep

Mid folds of some familiar hollow

Barely whispered winds of

Long hot summer days, now passed

 

They do caress

Her shoulders neath a freckled blush

From where she does

Discretely hide unmeasured sorrow

 

Today though garnets glisten

And the prettiest of bunting waves

Make no mistake,

The words he left here so many yesterdays

 

They do still cast a welcome glow,

Like the most comfortable of shawls

Might cast upon her neck and shoulders neath

Until the morrow

maybe we didn't or couldn't love enough back in the day...or just didn't have the right actions, even though the words were there...and could be looked back upon as shallow...and not meant then. But now reading them again...maybe we just didn't realize how much we did mean them...and perhaps that is giving her a bit of warmth now...perhaps she knows now how much she meant.

A poem tinged with sadness but intense with beautiful imagery. Reflections on long hot summer days when it wasn't only the weather that was heated. Felt the emotion here Neville. A really nice write. You at your best.

thank you Kymberleigh :)
Love can leave such joy in its wake. It's fleeting, its passing yet its essence is lasting. It was worth it.

A poem replete with summer/s mellow sweetness and a graceful, understated sadness, It's beautiful in its imagery and its expression of a myriad of emotions.

You're welcome my friend. It was my pleasure absolutely!
No! Not fair, we haven't had our summer yet. We're waiting for our free go once the covid/ lockdown bugggers off so we can enjoy the sun.
I bet its a bloody scorcher too, when everyone is back at work complaining about not getting a lie in anymore.
Blah! Why couldn't it have happened when I was at a five star luxury holiday resort? It's so not fair. Now if you'll excuse me, I needto go stomp to my room and play music too loudly 😀

A beautiful poem Neville, if I interpret correctly. And if I don't, it's still beautiful for what I see in it.
