Simmer

 

Alabaster sentiments
written in the delible ink
of a honeysuckles blood.
Promises parading on tiptoes
their muffled footfalls
affixed to strands of memory
thoโ€™ no little feat to hear,
remain soothing when recognized.
Unlike a scarf
held aloft on an exhalation,
a love preserved of hope
remains alight
long after the simmer
has left the pot.

 

This piece was inspired by the twelve words in this weeks Wordle #162 provided by MLMM. The words were:

Alabaster
Honeysuckle
Delible- capable of being deleted
Hear
Tiptoe
Recognize
Preserve
Muffle
Little
Simmer
Affix
Scarf
