A Whale of a Tale by Kim Rumford

Poetry


Only the Seasons Change

Stacey Dye

I sit in this window
and watch the arrival of spring.
Wisteria cascades from its vines,
honeysuckle tumbles in golden bunches
and I wonder if you know who I am anymore.

Paint peels from the sill.
This tattered cushion a testament
to how long Ive been ushering
in the seasons here alone.

Everything is new but our conversation.
Seems we only talk about work or weather.
Tell me Im important
or that youd slay a dragon for me.

Reader Feedback:

just beautiful love poetry
thank you
~lena

So portrays how outer and inner conflicts...
stagnant relationship vs outer changes.

"...and I wonder if you know who I am anymore"
lack of communication and understanding 'tween two
caught in it.

Ending verse has two couplets in opposite tension
which captures the essence of the piece.

Enjoyed.

This is the best poem I've read in some time. Spring is unfolding. Everything is new and fresh, yet old and tired.
~Cherie

This poem, spoken from the heart, is strangely uplifting, a sense of peace within the writer with clear observation of the outer reality. Thank you.
