Poetry For Sunday: Only Words

Only words. Nothing visual. A blank wall. Empty canvas. The mind must create. Let your eye wander. Close them. Don’t look. Just think. Embrace the thoughts. Like cappucino. Smell. Hear. Listen. Think. No images. Just sounds. Blind to the world. Only vibrations. Nothing but stillness. Only words.

Poetry For Sunday: Lapse

Momentary lapses of formidable emotions. Exuberant joy spread from heart to soul. Jumping jacks of excitement spring from the body. Come here. Please. I beg of you. Just for a moment. Well, lunch instead. A longing to see you is an understatement. Emotion beyond desire. A chemical equation: You plus me equals lovely perfection. Come…
