Ephemeral Love Poem by Almedia Knight-Oliver

Ephemeral Love

Rating: 5.0

Man dressed in black
Holding high and tight
His scythe.
Teasing me
When I pass or
-maybe gaze at me a while-
saving me for last.
Warm eastern dawn emits
light and heat, then fall
into arms of ablaze horizon

In the distance sits
moon's dim light along
side the lone star, acting
like a hundred lights.
Tired love,
no other
awaits me.
Should I love through
more repeating hours or is
love a constant farewell?

Almedia Angel - You are much too young for the grim raper but not too young for love. We all love you - not in an ephemeral way - but right from the heart. The sun is setting for each of us - but it rises the following morning giving us another day for life and love. Do we ever reach a pint were 'No other love awaits me' I don't think so - I know a lady over 90 who gives more pleasure than a teenager - we are nver too old for love! 'Should I love through mre repeating hours? ' That is your quesion Angel you have to answer it. The next line gives us the answer 'Ahead of us lies eternity' we have to hold on to love before that day. Our link is cerebral - spiritual and because 'Our Spirits remain love' we can love now and through eternity in an unbroken and unending passion. This is a ten rated poem. Love yu in Poetry - JOHN X X X

Your point is well taken. Love is intangible, ethereal yet here, a paradox.

'Our spirits remain love, And a constant Farewell' thats the quality of love, unworldly, just its reflection in a tear is visible..., thoughtful and beautiful, thanks for sharing 10

I know of what you write, at 75, I to kinow that everything is ephemeral. I don't even have to buy green banans any more. Having said that, you have penned a very lovely poem and I had a great time reading it. Keep up the excellent work, Lynn.
