Poetry

Rose Water Farewell

When we were saying our goodbyes,
A lock of your hair
Fell across your face.

Without a thought, my fingers lifted
Of their own gentle will
To brush it aside.

Then you spoke with both
Your tongue and eyes,
“You were good for me.”

Your words fell like petals
Into my blood. For years,
They scented my heart.


From Sunburst Woman: and other poems about intimacy by Jack Ontair, now available on Amazon.  “Jack Ontair” is the pen name I will be using for a series of books planned to be released over the coming decade.  Sunburst Woman is available in some markets as both a paperback and an ebook.  It other markets, it is available only in ebook form.
