first poem of 30 poems in 30 days:

April 2, 2013


poems are always about Love

in this guise or another-

for all we can compare

another metaphor waits there.

sometimes twisted by an angry haze

or lying low through doldrum days,

maybe standing strong as mountain

or tripping playful as

the rippling rill.

we fear it’s loss

to the fury of a storm,

as a gentle breeze is lost

to the howling hideous wind

that sweeps away all

and leaves us pinned-

but, no!

Love is still real,

stronger than steel-

as resiliant and sticky as a spider’s web.

a diamond

still shining,

still there

after all the waning ebb…

poems are always about Love.
