Love's Chime

Two Lovers Beneath an Umbrella in the Snow  Suzuki Harunobu (1725 (?)-1770) — public domain

she moves in colours only I can see to music only I can hear and when I tell her after all these years she laughs and shrugs and says to me “you silly man, you know I love you too” then tricks me once again with flecks of rainbow in her eyes and a triangle’s single crystal chime that resonates for hours when she says “too” and though we’ve shared twoscore the granted luck of years that no one can control still I selfishly ask for more and more of the colours only I can see and the music only I can hear

It's JD and I agree--this is so much more seeing it formatted the way you intended. Medium still leaves a lot to be desired. Gorgeous writing!

Welcome, JD, to my virtual writing desk of scattered words, and thanks for joining. You'll get notified when I post here, and often it'll overlap with a simultaneous submission to MMP (after all, there is a limit to a poet's inspiration). Still, some of what you'll receive through here will be work published on Medium before I discovered MMP, and which I hadn't shared yet on my blog. Take care, my fellow bard.
