Almedia Knight Oliver Poems
In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land
Recalling your eyes that once never wearied of mine
Tonight the weight of uncertainty keeps my lids wide
Envisioning love and passion waning like the moon
The baby breathing quietly
Passion wide awoke…these are
Times to keep awake and watching
stars in the distance sky...
Childhood screams and dreams are
behind, like our last passionate kiss
My dear we're just tired so, ...
The sun slowly sinks below her golden borders
as darkness falls over all life form.
Tears of compassion spring up as she watches over her children: the
Squirrels and birds and the tiniest insects; her helpful angleworms
and worthless plants all lay sleeping on her tummy.
She reaches up to the sky, closes the golden gate, and
turns off the light.
