A TRYST (for DVerse Poets)


The children are all abed,
now we can have our moment.
Make your dirty Martini
make sure you have a Margarita for me.
Let’s meet each other
in the living room couch
and cuddle as newlyweds do.
I’ll put up my feet right next to yours
on the battered coffee table and rest
my head on your shoulders
while we enjoy the Mentalist
solve the latest murder. We’ll chat
here and there about the day
as we let it slip off our mind
massage the kinks that drive
a space between us
remember that
which made us fall in love
and count
those that make us stay in love
then fall in love again
with each other

Tomorrow is another day.


For Poetics, DVERSE POETS’ PUB  features Claudia Schoenfeld’s sketches for inspiration.   Of course, Claudia is also one of the pillars of the Pub and poet extraordinaire.  Click on the picture to go to her Flickr page and on her name to go to her poetry blog.  🙂

Thank you very much for coming by.  I better  hit “publish” and link up before the Pub closes for the night.  🙂

  1. it’s good to get those kinks out of the way that destroy a relationship and enjoy such intimate evenings to just be together, talk about the day, enjoy each other and fall in love over and over again… glad you made it to the pub..smiles

  2. Couples do need to find ways to bring in romance in their lives. This is a beautiful way to do it. Married life, kids, responsibilities, work and all can somehow take away the spark and Cupid darts that we used to feel when romance was new but we shouldn’t allow such to prevent us from celebrating that wonderful thing called Love! All the best to you and your family.
