#Writephoto – Echoes of Love

Thank you KL for another great photo to write from. The prompt can be found here https://new2writing.wordpress.com/2021/08/05/writephoto-arch/

For me this is a perfect invitation for two of my favourite characters, Sir Geoffrey and Lady Arabella, as I can just see them wandering around the waterside.

Echoes of Love
Form: Free Verse

I hear her laughter
a ricochet through time
genteel footsteps on stone floors
and the shush of elegant gowns
Lady Arabella returns
to walk once more
in the garden where once
her heroic knight waited
to take her hand as he bows
and hear his lips kiss her palm
her gallant Sir Geoffrey
accepting her favours by the pool
and they walk together
man and wife in noble nature
together for one last kiss
for Sir Geoffrey must travel
to crusades for his king
to die for unjust king
and what of his Arabella
devoid of love she says good bye
to their garden
to kiss the cross
in the habit rags of the cloisters
so long ago the tears stopped crying
for their love reborn in death
has brought them home
