Another Sun Poem by Paul Hansford

Another Sun

Rating: 3.0

Perhaps in another world
another sun comes
lighting a different
and now,
where another I
could meet a second you.
Would she smile to know him there?
Would he look into her grey eyes and see
what I have seen, know
what I have known?
Perhaps in another world,
but here
spring always ends, petals
fall, and rivers
only run

Something sad, but poignant about this write...perhaps because it is a true reflection of life, love and it's fleeting moments...Coach

This poem so beautifully sums up how I feel about unjust fate - I wish I'd written it!

There is a lot here left unsaid, intimated in a wise, subtle way. Less is more often in modern poetry, and this is what we want to achieve: not a framed masterpiece but an energy construct. Each reader has a poem explode inside, each our own separate poem. The creative spark is shared. Thank you for sharing it, Paul.
