Perfect heart-shaped flower
adorn the garden of thy rose-scented bower
bearing Old-World charm
makes one’s heart warm

But have you heard of the folklore
what this flower betoken for
of a princess’ love lamented
to a prince, she once tormented

A noble prince tried in vain
to win her heart but oblivious she remained
even though exquisite gifts he brought
all his efforts have been for naught

The noble prince wearied and heartsick
pulled a dagger from his sheath
and stabbed his heart in anguish
forever his agony vanquish

Remorse she felt
for his prince too late her heart melt
proclaiming she’ll bleed for her prince forever
up until now her heart still bleeds as ever

Hey guys! I hope you like this collaboration I have with Shelley of Quaint Revival. She’s one of the sweetest here in the blogosphere. She taught me a lot especially about photography. I hope you can check her out if you haven’t drop by her wonderful blog.

I am deeply honored when she invited me to choose from her great gallery of photos and create a poem. She knows how I love photo prompts. I had difficulty choosing from her gallery because I love all of the photos she shared. After browsing from her gallery, the featured photo here was the one that caught my interest and I was not mistaken.

Thank you for reading! ❤️

P.S. I’m here again asking for your patience. I know I have been neglecting my blog lately. Forgive me for not repying to all your wonderful comments because of the preparation I need to do. I’ll try replying while on the road. It will definitely be a long drive! I’m so happy to share with you that my family and I will go on a vacation out of town. Finally! Clue: sand and waves. 😉
