POETRY MONDAY: BEAUTY

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Darling jenny_o of Procrastinating Donkey  participates in Poetry Monday. This week's topic is beauty.

Although I don't plan on being part of Poetry Monday or a regular basis, I want to share a poem that I wrote several years ago. I hope you will think it's a beautiful poem, but more important to me is that it represents the beauty of a connection between two people. Connections don't always last. They can be beautiful while they do.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

I get into my cold bed at night and
I whisper the silly nickname
I have for you and then
I talk to you softly about 
what it would be like if
you were here with me.
We would sit in the afternoon sunshine
with our books and 
share a kiss and a cocktail.
Then I would prepare a fine feast 
for us and we would dine 
at my whimsical blue table
while the blue clock behind us
quietly ticked off the minutes
until evening.

Then we would walk the 
dogs to the park
and talk about our books
and hurry home
to softly slide 
down the hallway
to my beautiful bedroom.

We would climb into the bed,
now warm,
and hold each other 
until you rested your ear
on my breast
and told me my 
heart was beating,
gently and kindly,
as it should.
Then we would make love
in the moonlight
until our two hearts grew together
and we realized 
the glow of the moon
came from 
within us.

  1. A connection like that is something to treasure, and to hug the memory tightly too.

    1. Thank you, Murees. I've written quite a few poems and posted them on my blog in the past. But then after a while I don't allow access to them. Someone encouraged me to publish them in a book with her company. I said I would but then she stopped being my friend. It hurt so much that I don't want to look at my poems anymore.
