Treasure Island

Paul Hansford


Another Sun


Perhaps in another world
another sun comes
up,
lighting a different
here
and now,
where another I
could meet a second you.
Would she smile to know him there?
Would he look into her grey eyes and see
what I have seen, know
what I have known?
Perhaps in another world,
but here
spring always ends, petals
fall, and rivers
only run
downhill.

    There is a lot here left unsaid, intimated in a wise, subtle way. Less is more often in modern poetry, and this is what we want to achieve: not a framed masterpiece but an energy construct. Each reader has a poem explode inside, each our own separate poem. The creative spark is shared. Thank you for sharing it, Paul. (Report) Reply

    Something sad, but poignant about this write...perhaps because it is a true reflection of life, love and it's fleeting moments...Coach (Report) Reply
