Finding Time to Love Again

We talked about poetry
Over cups of coffee and cigarette
In a café full of prowlers of pleasure
And skippers of wisdom
On a wintry day 
That was numbing my patience

The bitter taste of coffee 
Energized my words, 
Fluttering like cherry blossoms of spring, 
Right from my heart, timid, but with lots 
Of rhyme to offer,
And it beat
Faster than the hands of time
As I looked at you
With your eyes, teasing...

And I almost forgot
To take my «I love you, Dad» kid from school
‘Cause of your Angelina Jolie
Lips that giggled my widowed soul

Impressive atmosphere you create in this Vers Libre. Is it caffeine, is it Spring ? I love it. Iolanda

Pure T. S. Eliot flavor ... I love the flow, the T. E. Hume clarity of tone, brother ... this is another matchless write ... what genius!
