What Blooms Remain?

What blooms remain
To hold the cold
In pure disdain

Whose life consumes
Past morn and thorn
For them from wombs

Paired-petaled lips
Whisper to blur
Harsh truths in sips

Bouquet of mirth
On air, beware
Our tread on Earth

Effects of love
Stand firm the term
Prescribed above

Succumb like cream
To melt, be dealt
Recurring dream

These wayward clouds
Come nigh to die
In velvet shrouds

    “Paired-petaled lips”… these words are perfection to me. The entire poem is amazing! 🙂

    Fantastic imagery in this, loved this part:”Succumb like cream
    To melt, be dealt
    Recurring dream” ; and the photo is really nice!
