Faint glimmer in heart


Ripe autumn air’s come to bless.
Showering sweet November caress.
We could be holding hands and walking,
Silent but still talking.
Faint glimmer in heart.
White winters, no flowers in sight.
Frosty December moonless night.
And here I am hoping for your arm,
To keep me safe, to keep me warm.
Faint glimmer in heart.
The year twenty twelve is leap they say.
Oh! I can hope some more, there’s one more day.
Hope for smiling summers with you,
Hope for blessings to rain through.
Faint glimmer in heart.
Dying, not yet vanished,
There’s a faint glimmer in this heart.

  13. Lovely - the emotion, the images, the flow - and the title. That's what I love about Trifecta - the mix of poets and writers. I haven't studied much poetry or read much for that matter. Reading the poetry here makes me want to do just that. Your work is so nice.

    1. Thank you Annabelle. I had read some blog post about what special you would do on the extra day of the leap year. Guess that remained in the sub-conscious.
