In Plain View

A Poem by Sunflower/Sara Kendrick
"

For a contest

"
In Plain View
There in plain view a secret box
That held all his letters
Remants of your favorite flower
One to like, well never 

At the bottom a plane ticket
To a destination
Undesired, frozen Alaska
Total aberration

Why hold onto dead love letters?
Or his favorite flower
An unused plane ticket crackled_
Why reminisce this hour 

So different this strange couple
In flowers, expressions
Held together by a secret box
A unique possession

Within that box sealed away; things
Some bad these which they sling
Forget their existence, buried
Now that secret box cling

Cling to every precious moment
A love that lasted through
Good times and bad, hard times and sad
Divine love story true

Ah, yes. Such a well done poem. Superb writing on a sad subject in a way. It's these things that we keep those we love and lost alive in our hearts and soul. We bring them out when needed and hopefully the pain of loss will become more of a joyful memory.

Greetings! The flow of words made a marvelous rhythm and thus the overall image impresses itself more easily in the mind and heart and there lingers to resonate for a time. I enjoyed the structure of a longer verse fallowed by a shorter (and rhymed) one where it was possible. You have admirable rhythm.

A wonderful write. Keep the little things too, for they mean much once the loved one is here no more. A poem of sadness and great love. I enjoyed this a lot.

You are welcome, my friend.
This is so painfully beautiful, Sara. And it's no wonder you placed in the contest. It is moving and filled with emotional resonance.
