Poetry – Pressed Words & Flowers

In this free verse poetry “Pressed Words & Flowers.”

Oh, the stories we could spin, tales that go way back when. Funny how we think our meager little lives don’t mean nothing. But yet to another, they are fascinating tales of adventure and freedom. Spinning a free verse poetry and paint brush in this piece.

Image of free verse poetry "Pressed Words & Flowers.

You do hold more stories,
than dead flowers pressed
between pages where you’d
Scribble thoughts across time.
Preserved of musty fragrance
And your right to share them.
But what’s the use of parched paper,
when can words
like matches set a fire?
Or perhaps it’s simply primal
to be who you’re right now.
Existing as we know you
without the need to tell us how.
There will come a day
we’ll peel back the pages
of time, and of the tales
you’ve lived and left behind.
And when of telling your stories
of life untold.
Will make one think
of a fallen star and the beauty,
And shimmer of its light, it holds.

  1. Hi Linda, I kinda stumbled across your blog but I’ve decided to purchase your ebook. I’ll be reviewing it as well, once I’m finished reading it.

    I know how difficult reviews are to come by, especially those that consist of more than 6 words. After I review your work, if it suits you, I’d be fantastically grateful if you would review my poetry novel. It’s normally $1.99 but I’ll be running a promotion within the next 48-72 hours where it’ll be available for free. Again, this is only if you want to. Please don’t feel obliged.


    Many thanks!
