Once Upon a Memory

Once Upon a Memory

A pale rose nestled deeply between shapely
but slender alabaster pillars,
its bouquet intimate and subtly searing,

the taste of honey mixed with almonds,
flesh, tender and submissive,
surrendering to the soft touch of my lips,

in its own way,
returning my kiss.
