Afternoon Song

(written by Rosanna and Scot Young)

I
could
go on
in vain
w/o words
songs or
sonnets
but
you know
the lyrics
to every song
I sing

you
read them
to me
under
a morning moon
a summer
mountain breeze
a july sun
cutting
through
charcoal clouds
racing to the
east
laying
afternoon
shadows
across my
face

    It’s beautiful.

    Specially the charcoal clouds racing to the east image. One can see them as one reads.

    a great deal of love shines through this poem, somehow not contained in the words but containing the words. this shone out even before learning how it was written
