April 5-7 Poetry Challenge Poems from the Notebook in the Purse

I had a few in my notebook this week that I never got out to the pages here:

April 5 A Love Poem

It is becoming real
this comfortable sync into his eyes
sync into his skin —
You are as familiar as a century
and new as yesterday–

April 6 The Wind and the Rain
Each time I think
perhaps it is this time
I remember the rain storms
and how the boulder went down
too fast to watch for falling rocks
too big to be expected
to swerve and miss.
One story. One accident years ago now.
And it’s all I think of when I drive.

April 7 The Old Friends

I remember them
playing side by side apart
from each other
for what seemed like years
only months
and now they gather at the table
without us having to
They talk into the nights
of what became
and what’s to come
