Precious moments ...



A Nickel for Thoughts of You

I wish I had a nickel
for every time I think of you
watching TV in your creaky chair,
chin parked on your chest,
"... not sleeping, just resting
my eyes for a minute ..."
or with your brows furrowed,
chasing an errant whisker
through the foamy lather
on the stranger in the mirror,
or your gnarled hands working leather
and the amazing precision
of your intricate designs,
considering the size of those hands,
or you secretly watching me
from across the room,
-- and me secretly catching you
secretly watching me,
or your gentle touch
when you pass my chair,
just because you're glad I'm here.
Love is measured
in so many little minutes.
It's important we not miss them,
for who knows,
life might be metered in hours.
It isn't really about the nickels,
-- but it would be fun
to see the almighty pile of coins.

I remember as a young girl, thinking about my knight in shining armor, the white horse and all that, how unrealistic those visions of love are. This poem speaks in a gentle clear voice of love. Beautifully written.

I was thumbing through some of your poetry and came on this one which I don't remember reading before. Of course it is well written with that introspective touch of yours. I couldn't help thinking the last line would be a metaphor. A delicious one? Yes? No?

Another witty write and so true, how often would we have collected a pile of nickles!
