Some may say she’s perfect She’ll tell you otherwise Aware that she has faults There’s no need for disguise
Her shy smile and brown eyes Each melt my heart away Plus, an inner beauty She’s more than just okay
The time to share is now While in the Spring of life And were my wish fulfilled Come Fall, she’d be my wife
Yes, I know I’m dreaming Though hope to see the light Thinking of her daily And wanting what feels right
Of course, a few things would need to change. For starters, it certainly would be nice if she’d remove my name from being blacklisted on her site at WordPress. It would also be charitable if my emails were no longer filtered into her trash bin. And, on occasion, she could use Twitter to read some of the messages & comments I’ve left for her. Perhaps, as an act of goodwill, she might like a single post on my web site…sometime. Lastly, if she would refrain from associating my name with the term ‘devil’ – I think that would be helpful, too. Barring these few exceptions, the future looks bright!!!
I’m a photographer, designer and artist. And, from time to time, I indulge myself with words. I’m not a poet, per se, but there are times when I do enjoy the creative process of writing short poems. Yet, to do so requires a source of inspiration…
Fortunately, I have a good friend named Carla Milho, a gifted writer from Lisbon, Portugal, with whom I converse on a regular basis. I’m grateful for her friendship, and always enjoy her writings – some of which have inspired these poems as my response:
Were the day night, and night to be day, The tables changed of linens and wax. A challenge of discovery, Unraveling to be my task.
