STUMBLING (AND OTHER HAIKUS)

Solitary

The flower wilted

in the shaded-ground soil

off from the garden.

 

Cradle

It took months to bear,

yet as the fruit hangs heavy

the tree holds tighter.

 

Kiss

Unexpected pecks

from the tender woodpecker

break the tree’s thick bark.

 

My Rock

He’s the one who stays

waiting outside the doorway

when others roll off.

 

Stumbling

Do you think—that is,

could you—er, would you want to

go see a movie?

LOVE POEM #26 – VALENTINE’S DAY THOUGHTS

Valentine’s Day.

Gal-entine’s Day.

Pal-entine’s Day.

There’s so much love to go around:

 

Friends posting pictures together,

Lovers singing each other songs.

They’d bet it would last forever

But boy, let me tell you, they’re wrong.

 

Every song has a final note

And the ink on pictures will fade.

Love isn’t quite as it is wrote,

Rather, it is something that’s made.

 

Love is made in the dark of night,

When all others have gone to bed—

Conversations after a fight,

When emotions are colored red.

 

It is found in those few moments

That nobody else gets to see

Where we each share our atonements.

That’s what I think true love would be.

 

Of course, I say that while I sit

In a place that’s devoid of it.
