At Night, in the Dark, and Sleepless


                                      Square in dark-blue
                                      A small piece of sky

                                      Through open window
                                      the inert night
                                      Obscure absence...
                                      just air and time 
                                      Not sure if I'm here

    You have me contemplating that dark square it there, really or in my imagination. I mind drifts into the abstract at times. Thought provoking poem to me...enjoyed.

    Dear are always a stand-out. Not just in your poetry, but as a good guy! And I must return the compliment you recently paid me, when you mentioned "favorite" poets..... your heart always shines in both poems and comments......And I miss the old days, when it was easier to keep in touch.....but don't think I've ever stopped looking for your name. Thank you for always being so nice to me whenever you never goes unnoticed. :)

    Ruben, in its innocence and simplicity this is more than good----but, to expect less from you is, well, not knowing Ruben---got to favor this!!
