Love Sick

An ode to fleeting love affairs

"Love Sick" | Watercolor | 2019

Love Sick

Distance gets in the way

Across the ocean

Time is an hour late

Age a decade apart


A songbird sings soulfully

Poetry unheard read aloud

30 questions, 30 answers

A one month affair

Impulse bear hugs

Soft songs in the air

A walk in the rain

Hand gently held

Early morning kisses

All fond memories

Or mere illusions

In my spinning head
