RECOUNT

I asked her

in bed

covered in honesty

just fed

by nature’s always

replenishing,

I asked her

love lent,

what the number

6,000,000 meant?

……………………………

Looking up

like a little girl might

counting stars or sheep

she said,

“A large city

maybe a bank account?”

Then, closing her eyes

leaning over,

she said again,

“Come here! Give me

6,000,000 kisses!”

……………………………

Yes, we are learning

how to count again.

    I like when you rhyme a little, David! The rhymes in this one are especially unforced, playful.

    Not very deep analysis, huh? :D

    I also like the last line/thought in New Year’s Eve, and I like Shadow Work, perhaps because we share the same clothing/eating habits!

    So simple, I know. Carry on!

    Ellen,

    That is my forte I think – rhyme. It just is “comfortable” for me and I’ve never ever had a sense that when I allow words to “come on dove’s wings” that they are forced… glad they don’t read so either.. Next post will be something with rhyme. I used to challenge myself by writing Shakespearean sonnets, a few a day. Could be a good challenge again…
