thoughts before a phone call

instants
drawn into moments
drawn into eternity—

timelessness seems the essence of my time
with you I can be true weak strong safe centered challenged

Can you read my poetry, love?

my love, oh love, sweet love
dying living breathing STOPPED

will you dare the slow prose
the words visions of heart soul

Where will you be tomorrow?

love, fool’s companion,
shall keep its nest
it likes its home

my love, traveling
far off horizons
still searching the aching sweetness bitterness of
LIFE

Will you come back, love?

of course, i am love’s bastard
slave, apprentice, prodigy even
it will croon in my soul and stoke the embers always

she wanders…

The embers rest, warm.

eternity fades into
moments fade into
instants—

They will wait.

This is really great work. I find that often the best poetry can be that which
draws a reader into a maze of concept. This is certainly a great example of that!
