Scattered About

Tags: love
Still of silence wafting,
Like stale skies potpourri, 
Scent of yesterdays kisses 
And death of my dahlia, 
In a room without straw.

Cracked panes, the windows,
Soot on the past embers, 
Frozen dust in the corners,
Memories of our fires
And kindling love.

Years before aging bones,
Dancing in twilight, our desires, 
Now the harpsichord has dead keys 
And wreath of acorns in your hair,
Lay scattered about on the oak.

With broken string of my harp, 
I cry myself to weep,
Of many November's ago 
And still of silence wafting, 
In a room without straw.
