Your Gaze Of Green - Poem by Carol Fleming Klein

Years ago
on a rain splattered night

I sat across
the table from you
and took your measure
over a deck of cards

and measured again
for the cards had cast
you my partner

You gave me back
gaze for gaze
green eyes to brown
brown to green

mixing humor
question
and prediction

Even now
years after
our flirtation
over a deck of cards
the rhythm of a rainy night
speaks to me

And
your gaze of green
releases in me
the same magnetic pull

as on that rainy night
in a year now long gone

orig Spring 1996
