Love, By The Way

Love, By The Way short poem

There’s a stone that rests where the road bends
It greets me every morning on my way to work
Or so I think
I watch it as I pass, and I see it watch me
So stoned it looks. Oh wait a minute
(Isn’t that how it’s supposed to look?)
Quite cold its stares feel. Was it because it rained last night?
No life. So still. And unmoved
Even by my smile. Now that’s weird
A leaf, I can see, is stuck to it. Maybe because it rained last night
And she felt warm, with it by her side
Its impassive face might have lured her
And she might have felt safe with it
It looked like she had her hands on its shoulders
And she slept like a baby that’s just been rocked
(Another leaf watched them. She was green
Naturally.)
Just then a wind blew
And then, like a miracle, the stone moved
It turned a little, tilted into the leaf. Her delicate sides welcomed it
Like a kiss, they met
So shy she looked, so much at peace
In love she’d fallen. With a stone, so cold
I looked at the stone
And I’m sure I saw it smile

An Love Agony At 10:30 short poem

At 10:30, Silence Dispersed,every edge withdrew with dark, The moon was pale, still brightening as diamond spark, At the tree, an owl hoot, at surface dogs barked. Sudden, I heeded, the sound of footsteps was appearing from the street, exulted
