I really like your poetry…short and sweet- not many words but they convey much emotion…kind of reminds me of the spirit of haiku. Most of my poems are longer than yours but a Sufi poet named Rumi (1207-1273) inspired me to write a short one of my own.
The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
and he also wrote:
I am so small I can barely be seen.
How can this great love be inside me?
Look at your eyes. They are small,
but they see enormous things.
I wrote this poem and posted it on this web site under my nom de plume, Alan Strand:
'A Dangerous But Very Short Liaison'
A small kiss,
And yet I reminisce
About Love done,
And dream wildly about
What may have just begun.
Keep up your wonderful art!
