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.
