Love is Like…

Since it’s still Valentine’s weekend I thought I’d share two poems with you that I wrote recently. I don’t claim to be a poet and these are far from being really good, but in my own way I like them. They express some things I have experienced and thought a lot about lately. I hope you like them too.

 

Love is Like the Crashing Waves

Crashing waves,
coming closer,
nearer.
Suddenly to recede
before drawing near again.
We share a moment,
hands clasped in doctors office chairs.
A Chinese food picnic,
beer in paper cups,
wrinkled hotel room sheets.
A word is spoken,
misunderstood.
The wave recedes.
Kissed with tears
we partake in infinite rebirth.
A simple step forward –
the wave crashes in again.

 

Love is Like the Changing Moon

Light waxing
and waning.
Eclipsed.
One withdraws
a word,
a hand,
a thought.
One wonders
a perplexed “Why?”
The light wanes
and a wedge of distance returns.
Two so separate beings,
different in numerous ways,
distanced from time immeasurable.
A word breaks the silence,
a hand extends,
a longing returns.
Love waxes round and full again.

 

Rejoicing in the journey,
Bethany
