You and I

Only two more weeks of National Poetry Month...then you probably won't see much in the way of poetry posted here until next year. So, if you don't like poetry (phooey!), you only have to suffer through me posting a few more poems. If you love poetry, keep looking for a few more I will post over the next two weeks. Keep supporting these poets by finding and reading their work and occasionally investing in buying some of their art. Thank you once again Writers Almanac for existing...

How about a love poem for today? Here's a good one...enjoy and Happy Monday.

You and I

You are a warm front
that moved in from the north,
a blind spot bearing beautiful gifts,
a garden in the air, a golden filament
inscribed with the name of God's hunting dog,
a magic heirloom mistaken for a feather duster,
a fountain in a cow pasture, an anachronistic anagram
annoyed by anonymity, a dollar in the pocket
of a winter coat in summer.

And I am the discoverer of you.
