A Flock of Sparrows for Majel: From the Morning to the Night

A Flock of Sparrows for Majel

This morning I wanted to write a poem to you.
By mid-morning I yearned to make it true.
By noon, I wanted to tell you so much,
My words began to trip over each other,
And I became uncertain which were best to speak,
And which were best to keep inside.
By mid-afternoon, my efforts had become
A rain forest of diverse feelings and sentiments,
With all too many impassible thickets.

This evening it’s even worse.
This evening it’s as bad as I have ever seen it.
I no longer want to write to you at all.
I only want you here,
Us joined real,
Honest and naked,
And we in my bed
For the night.

    1. I love you compliment! I thought the compliment you gave me yesterday was about as good as it gets, but this one might even be better. It’s so hard to write a love poem that doesn’t sound like all others. At least for me. Thanks for the affirmation!

      By the way, I can’t stop myself from telling once again how impressed I was with the poem about Giving Rainbows on your blog. It was almost ennobling to read it. One of those rare poems makes you feel hope for our species.


I'd love to hear from you. Comments make my day.
