Something About Amor
by ©Richard Budig 2000

Chilly night muffled in fog
the kind where, in your mind,
you hear a sax crying into the mist
as you drift between light puddles
falling from old iron street lamps
and from way up there in the dark
coming from a dimly lit window
a female voice sings lilting French
something about ami and amor
and strangely, you feel better
knowing yours isnít the only heart
going home alone in the dark

I like this, very nice Richard!

This one created a sad but hopeful feeling within me.   The sax reference was great too.

 Don't gain my affections and cover my eyes. In blindness I will only swing harder.

Excellent imagery...very nicely written Richard. I could see this so clearly in my mind

Reminded me of Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier in PARIS BLUES. Very vivid portrayal, Richard.
