NaPoWriMo #30: First things

Jane Dougherty Writes

For the last day of #NaPoWriMo.

Painting by Caravaggio detail

First things,

A baby hand clutching my finger,

A kitten opening blue eyes,

Kingcups on the riverbank

When the spring floods ebb,

First rose,

Petals unfurling in flags of perfume,

A glass of wine on an evening terrace,

Your hand touching mine,

So long ago,

Making silent promises,

That only now I see you kept.
