A Bluestocking And A Lilliput - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

We are not seeing each other
but we exchange what they call poetry.
Madam you are far beyond the vicinity.
I am an old bachelor stick around
longing for something which I cannot express.
Do you find in my poems?
We are only two parallel lines
in the song of love.

to Amanda Lukas.

    I think our poetry says something about us, and yes some of us run in parallel lines, but with some, our paths cross, and there is a definite affinity... you have a lovely way of expressing yourself...
    Take care. Joey
