Best Monterey Sirak Poems

+ Fav Poet


Sleepless in sweatpants and t-shirt
You peaceful beside me
in your cupped hand a poem
A tribute to a single ripe persimmon

No such fruit remembered
from the spirals of our past
to be relegated now
to the realm of poetry

You fed me plump strawberries
        not persimmons
when we never wore
sweatpants in bed

Now I recall the passion
of our early poems
when our bodies loved one another
On our lips the sticky juice

I hear exotic sensual tones in your voice
Aged bodies     wrinkles left in the dark
scattered amid seeds and lost bites of persimmon
Plucking from time's grasp     a nourishing repast

A sonnet for a piece of fruit     
One significant poem melding yesterday    
tomorrow    into any and every day
Mellow orange faded from the red of the past
The first flush of strawberry passion still in our veins

You dreamed of feeding me a persimmon
while I lay sleepless at midnight

    It is past midnight in Sydney. I am going to have such beautiful delicious dreams after reading this wonderful poem. Fantastic write. Thank you for visiting my poems. I have been writing put not posting because it is not fair to have people visit when I could not have the time to reciprocate.

    by the way, I went to see what the title meant just now. That was a new word for me. The perfect title for a symbolic poem like this is.

    I will resist sweat pants as long as humanly possible. I wonder if I can use an iron to get rid of these pesky wrinkles *lol*. I enjoyed your poem Monterey. Thanks for all the visits this morning. Hugs Rick
