A Paper Rose is Forever

Each time pen and line
brush the page

it is with you in mind;

all these years

you've been
reader to my writer-

you and I

giving life

to what starts as

mere blank pages-

and end as

our shared experience.

I can feel you;
hear you breathing

and lay

down each



for you have


between my lines

 written and



those resonances
coming back

to my ear-



the journey

we each


have taken-
our lines entwining.

No greater bond

than the bond

of reader and that written;

no love more timeless

than that shared

in the missive


by two


in this journey


life’s space.

No gratitude greater
than mine.

Capture here then

to be clear


paper rose

this writing

its lines form

a rose

which will


down the years
forever read
forever written.

Reviewed by La Belle Rouge Poetess Of The Heart
Lonnie this is such a unique poem. To be the inspriation of poetry, those who are poetic could wish for no greater honor or caress. Yes this is the way it is with poetic souls they give and receive paper roses which are more precious and fragrant than the flower.
Reviewed by Joy Hale
I am new to your sight, but will return often. The words you write form a strong relationship between the writer and the one to receive the beautiful words you have written to them in what seems to be an effortless flow from your golden quill. This is a mini masterpiece!
