I like the company...
of your noises.

Cleaning the house,
master of the ship.
Never been able to make it work
as you do.

More than one place, it seems
at the same time,
has your care.

Moving the speed of light hands,
I feel dead things
in your control
come alive
and form a home.

You smile
unafraid
of your power.

I wonder
how I lived
without you.

TexUS,

“Robert” is the consequence of listening to a friend
talk about missing his wife while we were on a long term
assignment together on the East Coast and then
shortly thereafter mindfully observing a housekeeper
as she moved about the quarters we had rented at the location.
I suspect, under one name or another,
there are still a few Roberts around.

Thanks for reading.

John

The quality of this site goes up and up....YOU are one of the reasons why. This poem, such common things shown with such tenderness and sensitivity to the real meaning in what too easily becomes mundane....simply excellent.
