THE LOVER OF THE LIGHT ————RESPONSE POEM TO SINGLEDUST’S ————— The Lighthouse On The Hill

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

THE LOVER OF THE LIGHT - ON THE BLUFF 60 PERCENT

 

She stands high upon the bluff

a silhouette of one

lonely on the shore

It’s what she’s always done

She is a lonely beacon

unnoticed by the multitudes

but cared about by some

Love

by Nick Anthony

To think, you’re finally here with me!
After years of relentless, flirtatious banter,
Sometimes as playful as puppies, we were:
Other times more serious than a snake bite–
Always fruitless my affections were.

Unattainably distant, you seemed to me.
A hazy speck just beyond the horizon,
Across the ocean of my life.
And I, stranded on my little island,
Couldn’t possibly build a smoke signal
Tall enough to alert your look-out.

To love me now

Is a sin.

Trace me with your fingers
From my head down to my toes
From the mountains to the valley

My limbs and all my branches
And the curving of my nose
Let me feel your gentle strokes
Marking out my pose

It still feels like yesterday!

by Tanya

It still feels like yesterday
The same rush in the air,
Jostling with the ever rising sun-
Heading for another moment and fun..

With ruffled up hair,
I Tick-tocked far and away,
Feeling every sparkle on my face,
I settled that sling bag which swayed..

Coffee With A Side Of Pining

by A. Marie

Sleuth of my loins keeps himself to the doings of sudden street crossings,
most irregular comings and goings, having an epiphany
at the ferry, realizing that he must go right now, hurry off to
dream of me, write visions of me, lay in a bed of uncomfortable need
for me, address my shadow, confess his most sinful thoughts to my coat
I left hanging on his peg by his doorway, his collar constantly tightening,
his hands constantly needing unwinding, his armpits
