Reading Poems




Reading Poems

 

Throughout the day

I shall read poems.

Poems once written by two lovers

in the throes of passion.

 

Though companions,

they differ in their voice

and choice of words.

 

Picking up a book,

as time allows,

I search each passage,

living in the vicarious 

enjoyment of others.

 

One speaks to me in

metaphors and prose,

While the other in

abstract dimensions.

 

Always teasing the imagination,

a treat, no a full dessert. 

Each morsel to be devoured

with sheer delight

 

Throughout the day

I shall read poems,

and dream them into the night
