Our Love

NaPoWriMo Day 11

Our optional prompt for the day is based on the concept of the language of flowers.

with
trembling knees
we walk steadily
where
roses laid
down the aisle
symbolic
of love
pure and true
will
you take
my hand forever
and
hold me
never let go?
from
this day
forward to eternity
we
love until
our dying days

 

P.S

The poetic form used is hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words.

  1. *sigh* this is absolutely lovely and I love this poetry format! I’ve never heard of it, but I will start experimenting with it. I think it was the perfect format for your poem.
