The Girl At The Bus Stop - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

I thought you were a ghost
when I first saw you hovering there,
ethereal and vaporous.

You were lost,
you wore wisteria in your hair,

You crossed
the street and we sat there
as I waited for the bus.

In your gypsy dress you tossed
your skirts with flare,

I stood up to see
if my bus was in sight
and when I glanced back
all I saw was a sprig of wistera.

Your absence
haunts me.

    There was the disconnect in the poem, and the last lines summed it all up. Loved your style!

    Your absence
    haunts me.

    Indeed. Seeing absence and hearing silence. poetry is not a language; it is a meta-language. A very fine work.

    This is an excellent poem! I have seen plenty of those girls. After seeing them disappear, all you do is dream. Very well done, Sonny! A ten. (Report) Reply

    those moments
    when they happen
    watering the thirsty soul
    for years
    while decades
    flash by
    in a blur
    a wonderful poem
