New Lovers

Lying like dappled shadows at dusk

New lovers talk

After a long time—oh beautiful, oh silver, oh mercurial time!--

Our stories can be excellent in the telling

And I am thinking of another night

Of he who spoke so softly the truth

“Whether you like it or not

  It would be better to listen to the wind, to the sea,

And not to those who talk too much to you.”
Still we go on gathering up and letting go

New Lover's talk

From just beneath the surface of familiar things

Our words, our illusions, return

Sometimes I awaken at midnight to you
And to you   in silence   my memories return.

    Jose--Hmmm...I don't like to dictate what my poems mean to people, what they bring with them to the poem counts for much. But the 'deep thoughts' behind this poem for me is that "we tell ourselves stories" and "tell our own stories" of ourselves as we journey through life and our experiences. Sometimes in hindsight, when the story we have told ourselves has acquired a life or ending of its own, truer messages come through--a time for no words.
