Roses and Dark Sand

Roses and Dark Sand

A Poem by Michelle Raye

Turning, forever turning

Lay amongst the blackened sand

Of which is held inside your hand


Holding, forever holding

Touch the wicked suns of day

Hold my heart; forever stay


Loving, forever loving

Offering a rose with gentle nature's touch

Holding it softly with a child's clutch


Reaching, forever reaching

Buried within the enchanting dream

Eyes lost in a reflective gleam


Turning, forever turning

On a beach, in a place of our own

With just a rose and a ghost unknown

I like the ryming scheme. Good poem

this is beautiful, lovely imagery. it seems to have a dark feeling to it...or perhaps not dark exactly, but moody. it's not a happy poem, but it's not depressing either. that works really well; excellently done.

The yearning goes to burning in my take, nice traveling along. Some fine images I really enjoyed. Very romantic tone haunting ending, cool
