The Silent Pen

Barren pages beckon
To the silent pen
Begging its caress

Shadows of words
Hang suspended
Fitfully tangled

Like lovers
Flirting coyly
Desires denied

Come to me
Complete me
Touch me again


About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
