POETRY TEMPLATE-2- granite green
We listen to the wind in the pines rise, - Weebly.com
We sit on the cabin porch and rock,
recalling what these two years have stolen.
Precious friendships, adventure,
peace of mind.
Our innocent, thoughtless trajectory
through space and time.
We listen to the wind in the pines rise
from whisper to roar,
A lone frog sends its “Ribbit”
over the dark pond,
Hope rippling out into the universe.
“I am here.
Where are you?”
After a few unanswered minutes, you say,
“Someone should kiss that frog.”
I squeeze your hand.
Thirty-eight years together,
but why count?
Each moment a signal sent,
and, when we’re lucky--
Again, the frog croaks.
A third call.
And then what we hope for--
another frog responds.
