Save The Marker - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis

Don't forget to mark our page, a dandelion will do.
Save the page and day for anytime we meet again.
Maybe in a cafe booth over refills of warm tea.
Stretched like Bohemians in a train car slumming.

Or perched in the welcoming crook of a giant tree.
Feet dangling, all smiles like pirates in the rigging.
On a bus, a rickshaw or under an interstate bridge.
Shouting to be heard over droning traffic roaring.

Save the marker in the page until we meet again.

Topic(s) of this poem: appreciation, friendship, love

    The picture you paint of sitting in a tree with a friend/love is like the most natural thing in the world. The sentiment is so very sweet.and meaningful. Just beautiful. (Report) Reply

    I have my dandelion in hand. I'm pressing it under a stack of books to make a book market. I like the ideas and images you present in the poem... But my favorite part is the exchange being 'put on hold' in anticipation of another moment together... One that will be special and fun! :) (Report) Reply
