The pot-holed, tarmac road
disappeared like a snake
reluctant to spit its
precious venom of death

I looked ahead to the small
hills beyond the lake
and saw they were a woman,
and her morning breath

was in the lush valley
of my stubborn dream,
and I realised our love
had lasted many years

we were often scared it
might vanish like steam
- a ghost train puffing
up the incline of tears.

There was never a card
on that February day;
you kept passion secret
like a country unknown

and always I walked
the invisible way
beyond manicured trees
and pathways of stone;

there was something
startling around the bend,
a happy surprise past
the blackthorn bush

the road just went on
- there wasn’t an end
to the bliss still thriving
in a timeless hush.

{N: I'd delete the comma between pot-holed and tarmac; isn't needed, and it spoils what is otherwise p e r f e c t rhythm.}

Paul, this work of yours captures my imagination for the unique way in which you have chosen to express the life cycle - I am taken in particular by, "there was something startling around the bend, a happy surprise past the blackthorn bush - the road just went on - there wasn't an end to the bliss still thriving in a timeless hush" -yes, I know I could have also interpreted those lines to equate to a true love, however the greater implications would have been somehow dismissed in my view -- an excellent work my dear fried - I wish love and peace - Jon Michael

Paul, Your poem caught my eye in the recently posted list. I sure am glad it did. I find it professional but warm and full of loves' best and real fears as well. "A ghost train puffing up the incline of tears" Not the only great line but my favorite. You have made my morning! Be well, Kathy
