Deep Blue Sassafras

You never left
as another day passes.

Your love
my love
continues.

You sleep
or you wander,
depending on the chosen myth.

But those
deep blue flowers in a box
the color of your eyes.

The deep blue flowers
I found blooming
in the lumber yard.


I brought them to you
that summer morning in 1982.

The flowers
that smelled like sassafras.

Like you,
never leave my thoughts
day in, day out.

Thanks for reading, Jim...

I thought Google had lost this one, and started writing a poem about that... scrapped that idea.

It read as though it rolled off with one thought...I like those that were meant to be written...

I read this one on the Tavern stage last night for the Songwriter's Guild,
with just a simple acoustic guitar strum. The simplicity was a nice change
of pace, and the audience seemed to dig it, Apple Montage, and a few other
of my recent poems.

How so what?
How is this poem [a lament], or 'nice',
and how is its message [a lament]?
How, if you read it at least once or twice,
have you totally misunderstood?
Or if you have't misunderstood, can you explain?

Thanks in advance, Corey.

I can't explain why you took my verse
from another thread, changed a word
or two, and reposted it in this thread.
Can you explain why you did that?

Meaning I did see your post but you deleted it too quickly for me to reply, Corey.

Thanks, very to-the-point take on this poem from you.

Appreciated.
