First Love

Endings
berry-coloured
sentiments
resting on a shelf

Nostalgia
doesn’t give a lick
about failures
cherishes emotion

No amount
of cunning can erase
the sweet taste
of first love.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. So true and well said. I especially like “nostalgia/doesn’t give a lick/about failures/cherishes emotion”. There’s so much there.
