Poetry


The Only Two

Gregory A. Kompes

First romance, handheld tour through
Verdant earth, Springīs soaked ground
Life explodes, tall tree canopies shade.
What lies in these daylight shadows?
Ferns engulf, ivy crawls, birds call, answer.

Hands held tighter, laughter, amazement
Seasonal transformation
Creek turns river, deluged bridge damp.
What lies in these daylight shadows?
Over, beyond, we seek the place

Through those trees, over that path
Traveled before, alone, always
Alone in solace, in peace, in time.
What lies in these daylight shadows?
Now together, that someone.

Ramble through brambles. Really?
Yes. Itīs there. First promise.
Pricker plants trap, surround, swallow.
What lies in these daylight shadows?
No fear, excitement.

Lush valley spreads below, point, lookout
Favorite spot. Before alone, now with another.
Flowers in bloom perfume the air.
What lies in these daylight shadows?
A kiss.
