Three New Poems on I Write Her – The Short of It

Nature Changes 

Hearts of love hang by spider silk, painting the rust-colored leaves,
shedding old clothes as dying flowers bid goodbye to bees.
Impatient is the fall wind, causing green to intermingle with the color brown.
We are watching the movement of the last squirrels digging holes in the ground.
Kisses fall from the sky from migrating birds as they say their goodbyes.
My soul spins restless as I imagine nature cutting so many gorgeous ties.

Lost Love

How can I begin to soothe the covers of the bed with my sad tears?
I thought we would pave a path of red stone throughout the years.

Can’t you hold me, my love, just one more time so I can see white?
Please breathe me in like you can, just for one more delicious night.

Half a person when you are not with me, I am lost in a sea of sorrow.
I cannot bear the dream or the truth of such a loveless tomorrow.

The Lighthouse

your song plays and tiptoes inside my loving head
erasing any static in the air, with your pleasing voice
your sound stills my watch’s long blue arms, stopping time
four months have gone since you left on a fishing boat
now only the brooding sea life is here to cry tears for me

      1. This really does touch my heart John. Thank you. I read your lovely stories and it makes me think of my father when he was very young and in the war. It makes me imagine that he was treated and found kind company, like you did. I know he, if still with us, is much much older than you, but when you are away from home, kindness must be worth it’s weight in gold. So your stories always make me think of my father and how he might have been loved wherever he was. Hugs πŸ€— and much love ❀️ Joni
