A Not-So Long Distance Love Affair

I write, read, crochet, sing, and play musical instruments. A sucker for learning.

September Poem #6

It's just another day

with that pretty face

those deep-set dreamy eyes

that bundle of hair with

white streaks on the side

those stubble above and under

those plump pink lips

those watermelon cheeks

that mole on the right part of that

wide neck

those chubby fingers with clean minute nails

all contained in that landscape

sometimes portrait video frame

That moving image is my great love

that I want to be for the rest of my life
