A Poem by Richard Schnap

Alpha and Omega

She remembered her first kiss
A newly planted white rose
Opening its petals to the dawn

And her first night of love
The sun climbing over the sea
Its waves washing over her heart

And her first goodbye for now
The moon waning in the sky
Hidden till its next incarnation

But she never expected the end
An evil wind stripping the trees
Turning them all into skeletons

Richard Schnap is a poet, songwriter and collagist living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  His poems have most recently appeared locally, nationally and overseas in a variety of print and online publications.
