菊花 – A Poem by J H Martin

菊花

When I
Turn the camera on
I find it hard to speak

In your eyes of yesterday
I still see a glint

Not of what I knew it was
But of what it could have been

Spring time
Filled with cherry blossom
Summer filled with wine

Like some faded photograph
The colour still appeals

Bamboo green
Rose pink silk

Nothing forced nor changed

The shutter goes down
And I sit in silence

Your jasmine scent lingers
