beneath the waning
lie echoes of the young
heart beating, thrumming
with yearning, passion
once strong and heady, now
gone the way of the forgotten
green shoots of promise.


Happy Recipient of The Everyday Goddess'

green shoots of promise -> forgotten only till we wake again after the long winter, then we'll remember once more.
