Poem - Two In Time

February 14th, 2018

Dear Em,

 

I started this poem a long time ago, When you and I were TWO,

If I said I knew exactly what is was about, I would not be true.

I just know when I wrote it,

I was contemplating life and you.

I know it is about feelings,

and letting life unfold,

and yes I miss you dearly,

and wish you were here for me to hold.

I finished it, and played words round and round,

till I finally think I am pleased, with the rhythmic sound.

 

A poem that needed rehab...from years ago I found,

One of my babies, I caressed and comforted,

its loose ends I soothed and filed,

and weathered its edges from rough to round.

 

TWO IN TIME


Searching for an obscure feeling,


The buoy lifted that falls tossed by the sea,


Like a wheel within a wheel,


individuals spinning free.


They might juxtapose


as easily as coincide,


Hypnotically observe,


Or mesmerizingly enjoy the ride.


Some time I take to pause,


Just to sense the breathless awe,


Some time I take to be free,


And feel Joy’s joyful sweet amour.


The embers of conscious life caressed,


Bellows fan to a rich warm flame,


With each new breath I softly breathe,


No two moments are quite the same.
