Poem in Response

Having read “Loved Like Roses“, written by the beautiful Holly Hunter, a very talented poetess and friend hailing from The Sunshine State – wherein love is nurtured and flourishes in a summer garden – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

Flowing curves, under pen
Laced of ink rippling wet
Words converge, fresh with love
Roses bloom in duet
