For Kati - Poem by Brian Purdy

we two are old
pleated by cares
but still can mount
proud passion's stair

and if we pause
to catch our breath
at stations preceding
'the little death'

are not made sad
at these reductions
but use them to polish
our imperfections

continuing then
from whence we came
for old grows warm
by lack of shame.

    Very tender yet passionate. Nicely done Brian.
    Sounds like you found a good one to grow old with. Wish I could say the same. (Report) Reply

    simple, impressive, classic, expressive, and can press on one's heart to the extent that he has to say enough it hurts, it's painful but at the same time it's beautiful, dear friend of mine you are doing good and sometimes i feel as you are working your own experiments in a new lab of poetry but it works so keep working, long life and blessed brian
