Poetry Magnum Opus

In the Thick Clouds

Recommended Posts

You came and sat

at the breakfast table

like the early sun's pretension

to break away from thick clouds.

I did wait

 

closing the window,

to keep out the chill,

finishing my cup,

until your eyes

come out of hiding.

This poem I think reminds of some other poem from you Joel. Or it is the same one , if you shared before?

However. I like it a lot. You give so beautiful imagery at the beginning with wonderful expression:

You came and sat

at the breakfast table

like the early sun's pretension

to break away from thick clouds.

 

And the end:

until your eyes

come out of hiding.

It is nostalgic and sensitive. And always your poems has the " start " and the " end " at the right imagery and sense.

 

Good write

Thanks, Aleks. I wrote a poem about the same setting called "Cold Breakfast". I think that's the one you recall.
