An interwoven tale

TSL prompt:challenged to write with opening lines given and a portrait/painting in conversation with poetry
April 26, 2020

A newly wed husband gifted
to his beautiful blooming bride
a painting of a bird and flowers
with such elan as of elegant pride.

“Places you can find love
It sits around lurking in places”
intricately interwoven like the tapestry
of well-embedded laces.

He said to his wife, “Look deep
through those flowers, red, white and yellow
as the bird anxiously anticipates
in silent melodies of mellow.”

The wife replied, “Its beautiful
and painted so well by the artist.
He said, “ Through the music of memories,
it waits for the song of the true harpist.”

The husband continued, “Love
is unconditional and pristine
and lurks latently in anticipation,
in hopes through gleamed eyes that shine”.

The wife was still confused
and couldn’t comprehend his every word
and therefore he continued, “Wait for me
unconditionally like that bird

till I come back alive or dead
but I will be back for sure.
A soldier keeps his promise
and I will be back for sure.”

The wife cried, her tears
a mixture of pain and pride
as she embraced him tightly
gearing up to sail her next stride.

“Places you can find love
It sits around lurking in places”
intricately interwoven like the tapestry
of well-embedded laces.
