At enternity’s gate
-Two souls dance-
Leaving footprints in thick paint.

As White petals orbit round,


Under the shade of the almond blossoms.

In a field of gold
-Two souls fell-
Neath the starry starry night.

Two crabs on a beach
Looking out into an endless sea.

Two flowers

In a vase
In a café

At night.

-Nessie Roswell
