the red geranium

do you remember

the red geranium

the one that we both took photographs of?

yours were taken

in black and white

the one that I took, in color?

it’s 2 a.m.

and i have to say

that I still cling on to that photograph, sometimes

usually while counting sheep

the murmur of traffic

reminding me gently

that life does indeed, go on

Written for Three Word Wednesday.  This week’s words were:  cling, murmur and taken
