Until We Meet Again, 2013 Poem of the Year

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

 

Notice how many times we say good-bye when we

Part like love birds leaving storm gathering gulping

de villiers st

 

Atmosphere to sigh out too cold to shudder out rather be in from the

Rain shaking off its moisture as two stable geese after gathering its brood

woodstock

Fed comforted cherished brood jealous as the fox does when it

Clutches onto a helpless meal when we part kisses too many to gather countless as

manenberg

 

Heavy winter drops thud to rumbling roll storm clouds colliding eternally

Never really alone are we solitary panther alone slinking obscurely in

ferrara

 

Tree of life hidden from unsympathetic eyes seeks only weakness to ravish

At a peak on a mountain top blue watching pattering steps

via mezzanni

 

Closer to ending journey one final look back not like wife of Lot but happy glance

Careful thought as lonely eagle ponders prey until we meet again
