"Lace and Lilac" presented by A. F. Stewart during National Poetry Month




Light through a prism, and we see colour. 
Colour is all around, enveloping our lives and feelings. Through tinted shades we see the world, with emotional ties that bind. 
Within the book, Colours of Poetry, you will find eleven sections, all representations of different hues, each featuring seven poems that explore the intricacies and fallacies of our world. Come and sail the Sapphire Sea and Sky, cringe at the Crimson Bloodstains, wonder at the Emerald Creation, dazzle in the Lemon Daybreak, linger in the Tangerine Sunset, sniff the Violet Petals, feel Umber the Earth, let the Black as Night and Death surround you, shiver as you pass by White Winter Bones, lose yourself in the Grey Haze, and stare up at the Silver Stars…




 "Lace and Lilac" spotlighted today during National Poetry Month...

















Lace and Lilac

The memories smell faintly of fragrance,
that sweet floral scent haunting the air
A dried sprig of lilac, sheltered by lace,
in a faded box, wrapped with red ribbon

That sweet floral scent haunting the air
recalls an image, a hint of the morning dew
of youth, of laughter, of the warm garden sun

A dried sprig of lilac, sheltered by lace,
given with love, once fresh, wild, and alive
flowers wilted, brittle, yet preserving time

In a faded box, wrapped with red ribbon
rests a mislaid hope, a lost love mourned,
eternal adoration made of lilac and lace
