September afternoon


Walking with a brown scarf
looped about me
like a comforting reminder of hugs.

Contemplating my shadow
with a tilted smile
wondering if I am cuter in shades of grey.

I close my eyes, like I always do,
and pretend you into presence.
So much better to walk with company.

I wander along with my thoughts
in no hurry to find direction.
Content to let time find me on its own.

  1. Enjoyed the clearness and simplicity and the originality in the context of very normal, natural concepts. So many nice lines! Particularly love the last 2 stanzas!

    (Also nice list of poet references on the right side of your webpage! They way to becoming a top-tier poet is to write a lot and read a lot!)

  2. Thanks, my poetry often expresses my spirituality, which is Taoism. I appreciate the support and encouragement. I have added you to my blogroll. If you have an interest please feel free to complete an interview from the questions under that page and/or suggest it to other poets. I enjoy featuring them on my site.
