On a Wintery Night, Part Six

Standard

*

.

I like the whispers you exchange

the drawn-out breaths

the air you take away

from each other

I sense your bliss

I accept him

 .

but he’s lacking he’s not here

today and you – alone

on a freezing porch –

seeking meaning

make no sense

On a Wintery Night, Part Five

Standard

*

.

the little one

approached me

looking up in stupor

what are you doing out here

engrossed in your beauty

cladded up that way?

 .

he ignored my smirk

my pleading eyes

you have no fur coat

under neat your robe

is your silky pale

wintery skin…

 .

that skin the big one seems

to love so much – the silken

and the watery he comes

looking for a great deal

I like him to like you

On a Wintery Night, Part Four

Standard

*

it had been a long time

since I sat here – listening

to night’s nature

searching words

reasoning pain out

it had been a long time

since I had done this

in English

may be to draw away

from you – as I fear

the end of us – of this

half life you are handing me

that seems to not be

sufficient for me

any longer

.

I sat and recon myself a woman

a venerable woman I knew

diverse – as if she had

crossed many continents

on feet and wings

in the dark season

 .

finding herself

on the porch once again

wondering over a map

of tender love on which

she had lost the way

one more time

.
