Sharing Pockets            (A Poem for Eight-Eleven)

Come walk with me,
share pockets and laughter,
I mean somewhere out
beyond where people notice,
someplace warm with green and sand,
where folks think nothing of two people
falling on the grass but still in step
still sharing pockets full of love.

Come walk with me,
leave the rest of it home,
I mean, somewhere out
beyond the past, beyond the life
of phones and E-mail protocols,
where wrists aren稚 bound by watches
and tongues aren稚 bound by anything,
where falling on the grass is just
being in step, and pockets full of love
are open to all pilgrims.

Come walk with me
share pockets, laughter, life;
I mean, somewhere just like this.
We値l make the present a present
and open it together, pass the past
and when the evening comes
we値l find a hill somewhere,
a cool place over water where
we値l never notice the sunset
and come home in starlight
with our pockets full of love.

Sounds like a lovely place to be for a couple of hundred years.  Something about pockets is so innocent and carefree...and sometimes a pocket holds a little treasure, like this poem, something to put your hand on to remind you to smile.

This Is one of the most beautiful verses I have ever read...
Today, 8-11 is my daughter's birthday...
I am sending this to her..she will love it as much as I do.
Thank you for this treasure.
~Summertime Smiles, Nancy~

~The breeze that kissed you on the face,
    Has held me in the same embrace~

I couldn't think of a name for this poem....somebody wished me a happy eight-eleven this morning, so I just called it that without waiting around for my naming machine to grind one out......

Can anybody suggest one?

Your "naming machine"?

Enjoyed this, ratle.
Nicely rhythm'd.
I could use the freedom . . .
and the consortium.

When a poem is this beautiful, it goes straight into the memory books, whatever the title might be. *S*

And I agree with Enchantress... except that I'd expand her comment to include the entire poem being one of the most beautiful I've ever read. *S* You have truly penned a treasure. *S*

a cool place over water where
we値l never notice the sunset
and come home in starlight
with our pockets full of love.

It doesn't get better... or more romantic... than this. *S* Beautiful work, my friend... yes! *S*

Ed~
I am pleasured to tell you that this is 'greeting card' stuff~
AND THAT IS A HIGH COMPLIMENT~

I love the idea of 'Share Pockets' for the title~
Intriguing enough to bring more in to read ... intriguing enough to cause me to buy it in a store~

Thank you, picture lady, and thanks to everybody for stopping in.

For a moment or two... or a lifetime... what a wonderful place to be. *S* This shares such joy... so beautifully... yes! *S*

If this place is real, keep it to yourself, cuz if you don't, the entire PIP community will be there....hmmmm, wouldn't that be a riot...

Thanks Ed for a magnficent journey

Just because some inkings are thought of as priceless

This one is among them~
