Refreshingly Yours

(I wrote my ekphrastic poem towards the prompt as an Etheree, a poem of 10 lines, the first line with one and the tenth one with ten syllables with an incremental of one syllable after each line)


found you,

after ages,

same pungent scent,

same willowy frame,

same insouciant  walk,

with confident and firm gaze,

ignoring  subtle emotions,

in  lieu of  responsibilities,

do you still remember this very place?
