Alone, but for
the red boots marching
through my

cathedral heart: I
am beating echoes
in this city of the

lost. Ghost-
stepping little girl's
dreams, I visit mama

in the night; but
flowers and wine won't
pay for her light.
Peony: the little lost.

This sounds like a funeral that has evoked childhood rememberances, a wake(this is what we call our gathering after the funeral) with flowers and wine. And when sleep comes Peony is taken to dream of mama's passing when she was to young to grasp the spirituality of funerals and as it was that night, Peony just could not shed light on Mama's death.
*The Peony flower symbolises for some, romance and prosperity - how would I fit that into this interpretation?
I love this poem, whether I correctly grasp or I am a long way off. Hopefully you will let us know what it is about!

You are a highly talented writer and I sure do enjoy reading your poems. Ofcourse the invitation to interpret "Peony" was stimulating! Thank you.

Ooh, chilling. :heart:
I can't guess what it's 'really' about. A war would probably be my best guess. Either way it has a lovely, chilling sound to it.

That one somehow sounds beautiful and sad at the same time to me. Especially the third and fourth part. Your choice of words is also interesting. Is it intention, that people reading this feel like they are looking/feeling through the eyes of a child? Or is it just me? (Except the wine...)
