Would you?

would you question someone so beautiful

if you knew you’ll always be together

warm as the insides of a snug hug

familiar in consent and in dissent

tenacious and trusting in times apart

pauciloquent in honey melded silence

interlaced for hours in contentment

intimate in the tracings of tenderness

assured your eyes can sleep because it is home

would you question someone so beautiful

when you know the answers don’t matter at all

This is not ~ a free verse

This is not a banyan tree
Her arms span a hundred years
of stories as you turn her every leaf
rustling up rememberances
from her soul as she smiles
or dabs a teardrop that drips
her secret sadness to be whispered into the earth

past perfect ~ a haibun

April. Mayfair gardens. Spring turns summer. Today would have been the day. A fresh waft of coffee coloured earth wakes me up from my what-ifs wanderings. I’d fallen asleep on page 34. The paperback lay disappointed under our great big oak with its great big shadows stretching toward a darker time. Just as you did that January afternoon when you messaged “Sorry. I don’t.”
