this morning…

eyes open wide at sunrise,

i’m pondering a metaphor

for love

to paint a poem of words

of the two of us in couplet

yet apart

today between the lines

you will teach chess to

the school children

today among minutiae

i will savour our


let this stanza of our lives

speak to beauty in its rhythm

and its rhyme

let passion write the verse

twin souls in gentle tandem

through the hours

tonight, reverie abandoned

i’ll bathe in quiet


tonight, your page bookmarked

you’ll read me as i want

to be

you whisper my name jennifer

i think i’ve found the metaphor

in you
