Stasis appeals
Loss of a single second
Would sunder my heart.
But love and ponds
Become stagnant
For want of motion
So move with me
Abide in me
Coalesce body and spirit.
We'll live, progress
Share each lasting moment
Into the stillness
Of repletion
That yet hungers.

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

Laura, this is so moving....

There are poems I don't like much, and poems I like very much.....and there are poems I wish I'd written. That's what kind this one is. A beautiful thought, beautifully told -- hold on to both, they're precious.

Well, hello gorgeous!

love the pic.

and the poem, is different too, yes?

I like the tone of distance here--and yet, it's very intensely intimate.

hmmm...

and I'm pouting too, after seeing your pic.

(I feel so...inadequate...)

well you know how I like free verse, so this reads wonderfully to me, but will also have to add that this is GREAT...ponds and love...wow what a thought, this will be added to my favorites of yours...would be hard pressed to just pick one, so I made a folder of them *smile*
