Monthly poem - May 2019


Tulips are better in bud,
colour soaking in with a loaded brush,
a flame among the innocent heads
of deep pink and blood red.

The man who was alive, has fled,
the doppleganger, perennial thief,
long legged spider man
who left me a room full of grief.

The doctor's words fell like lead
unable to escape
the tender strain of love
that spread like a stain across the bed.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
