Double Lounger - Poem by Patricia Gale

A soft double lounger closely sitting next to the fire
Distance enough just for warmth.
Small diamonds suspended in the sky
Crescent moon sliding slowly
Autumn’s call singing early
Sweet whispers of the night

A midnight blue sky adorned with a spot strewn here and there for billowing clouds
Red embers of wood taking the form of burning shades of lava

Closing my minds eyes, I turn and hold a soft feather pillow
My hearts eyes open wide and I picture you
Holding me in your arms
Gently your lips kiss the top of my head
I am so close, so safe … not a care in the world
From my soul a deep sigh forms…I am wrapped in love

Whispers are heard along with autumn’s early call
And slumber finds one on a double lounger holding only one

    Sigh... this is so tenderly written. The descriptives are sublime to say the least 'small diamonds in the sky' - what a gorgeous way to mirror the stars. I loved this piece Patricia, so evocative and eloquent. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    Autumn's early call, the red embers of the fire, the lounger holding only one, and the sighs of a love long gone........tragically mellow and infinitely sad. And yet, there is so much beauty and serenity in this piece. Magical writing, Patricia.

    Love, Fran xxx
