Dark poetry and longing

traverse the unbound heart,

igniting flames of winter blue

and summer gold in their wake.

Scents of forbidden fruit

waft through the forest of words

luring the unwary from the known path,

encasing them like insects in liquid amber.

Revel’s wild music is in the air,

beware of the one who wears two faces.

Winter sky and part of the city's skyline reflected in the waters of Lost Lagoon near the edge of the forest, (Vancouver, B.C.).

This poem is a continuation of the December thread started by my dear neighbours, Huguette and Jacqueline, to write a poem each month celebrating the months of the year.

I'm currently blogging from the beautiful West Coast city of Vancouver, British Columbia - a vibrant city by the sea, surrounded by mountains and a very unique urban forest.

    Oh, I love the threat of not being able to trust them and the insect analogy. I definitely was thinking of flies in webs when I put this together https://ruthmercury.wordpress.com/2017/02/04/the-problems-with-fire-video/ x
