recreating Sarah

Conjuring, I draw you from the past

I streak your hair with Spanish red

recollection is a soft and flowing river

and dress you in shades of blue

and I fear I’ll drown if I wander in

dotting your eyes with gold flecks

struggling against painful memories

that burn more than they sparkle.


PAD prompt: write a portrait poem.
