Coffee date



Coffee date


If we were having coffee

I wouldn’t glance at the clock,

I promise.

I wouldn’t think of

How I have been

Here before.


I would treat you as if

You were the only man

On Earth.

Because for me,

You would be,

And you are.


~ Zornitsa

*A Christmas Romance*

This white Christmas

I’ll be waiting for you

Under the mistletoe,


To tell you that

The reflection of the

Christmas lights


In your loving eyes

Is all I’ve ever wanted.

Merry Christmas, my love.


~ Zornitsa




Sometimes when you walk

Hand in hand

With a good friend

You reach a crossroad.


You go around in circles.

Two steps down his path,

Two steps down your path.



Then you hug and let go.

You step on your own path,

And your two hands

Are alone.



Stop and smell the roses

*Stop and smell the roses*

Stop and smell the roses,

They said.

They won’t be there forever,

They said.

The rose is frozen now.

Yesterday she put on

Her best pink dress

And her icy crystal earrings.

She wanted to be pretty

On her last night out.

Poor rose.

It is November now.

Your girlfriend is putting on

Her best pink dress

And her crystal earrings


Tell her she is beautiful.

Bring her some pink roses.

Don’t wait for

Valentine’s day.

We’re not here forever,

They say.

Tell her you love her

Every day.

 ~ Zornitsa


This poem was inspired by a photograph by Silvia Angelova. The photograph is showing a beautiful rose covered in snow, and I believe it was taken in November last year. I usually try to find a picture to match my poems, but this time, I tried to find the words to match this beautiful photo!
