Orchid Flowers

Mary Anne Zammit

Bell rings silently and my heart stops bleeding.
Stars shine softly on lucid skies.
The warm feet of a woman as she crosses golden sands,
your eyes casts shades of remembrance,
and in my wake to a new memory.
We walk, we talk.
Your hands reach out, my heart trembles as you put the orchid flowers on my breast,
Awakening me softly.
It is late now and time to go.
