Affirmation Poem by Robert Charles Howard


Rating: 2.0

A stranger ventured
across the universal chasm
setting lips and tongue
to calculated motion.

Ordered sound waves
shook my auric drums
and journeyed to my soul

and from my reservoir
of social response,
my pliant mouth described a curve.

Three puffs of air,
pulsed and filtered
by cords - tongue - lips,
responded to her thoughtful stimulus,

“Thank you, dear.”

Wonderful image here, of the stranger vaulting the chasm (of not knowing you) , and, setting everything in motion, provoking a response from you. Well orchestrated poem!

Warmth is a rare gift, one that keeps on giving. Captivating imagery. As always, Sandra
