Back when I didn't yet know that goodbyes
might be final, when time stretched generously to places
untraveled, back when you and I lived
blue came, wrapped us in crenalated
folds dampening other colors, tamping down
heartfire as it introduced finality. We
bowed under the weight of blue.
Posted for Flash 55 Plus for Kerry O'Connor at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads who asked us to add the element of color to our 55 words. I took the photo in the Montparnasse Cemetery in Paris.
