My #26 for National Poetry Month



if each day you find

me, tangled in

music and words,

bits of me enmeshed in their web


i will find you too.


if each day you smile

at me

presenting love

on your lips,

my own will return

the favor soon enough


for i know

all we need

begins and ends here.

      Wonderful poetic thoughts. Audrey I have been trying to keep up and even putting 3 or 4 poems nicely numbered in my poetry blog but despite keeping up my own way I am glad it ends tomorrow. The journey as usual has been exciting.

      Love and attention are always good themes. To have them centered in your poem is even better.
