the gravest one

(the smallest sense of things that melt on tongue)


they say
no two
are alike.

you, me.
sky. sea.

give me a light
….ing any day.

epitaph for a sunrise: stay.

one: this snowflake.

………two: my heart.

Kerry has us pondering E.E. Cummings, snowflakes and micropoetry over at Toads. What could be better?

    Divine. Especially the epitaph for a sunrise bit. Utterly divine.

    Great write, De. Enter the marriage of Sunrise and Sunset (my idea, I like sunsets, they aren’t so early). May we enjoy them forever, no burials, please stay.
    I like too, your use of the ‘one’ and ‘two’ although there is a mystery there for me to figure out. Not an outline system, is it? I didn’t understand Cummings’ use either, there was no ‘two’. Meaning “this snowflake and my heart?” Maybe the engineer in me is coming out again?

    This is just beautiful, De. Such a light touch, with incredible depth of emotion.

  4. This is absolutely perfect. Especially love
    you. me,
    sky. sea.

    This poem reminds me of a short guitar or saxophone solo – bliss!

    Charming, and heartwarming.

  7. You’ve put so much passion and meaning in such few words. Wonderful.

    This is wonderful–quirky but also precise and universal (in best of ways.) k.

    THIS is WONDERFUL! Very cummings-y, too.

    The line, “epitaph for a sunrise: stay” just pulls at my heart. Really beautiful.

    This was fun and beautiful at the same time.
