Hanakotoba: The Japanese Language Of Flowers


The Last Kotoba

What is it that makes you and l unique to each other?
No love song, nor meeting stone or even special flowers hold us together,
And yet we share the connection of long awakened lovers,
Likened to centuries of moments and discovered golden treasures

The touch of sensuality shared between each embrace,
Our hearts beating as one, the essence of unforgotten times,
When we danced before, entwined lovingly face to face,
Indulging in forbidden pleasures, unmasked and without disguise,

We have evolved like the lost sands of the hourglass,
Memories of yesterdays no longer searching for adventure,
Our desires within exploding out of each others’ soul eyes,
Understanding and knowing no needs for censor,

We know and knew only too well, there is no hidden surprise,
That we were together as lovers from afore,
Our connection has simply rekindled and survived,
Years of waiting for an awakening we both adore.


“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.” ―Sarah Dessen
