On this

summer                 day,

lost                in you,

I see no end.

This poem is my 1500th post! 🙂

There are a few ways to read this one, each painting a slightly different picture.

you

me

.   sauntering

strolling     .

.           meandering

traipsing              .

.                          ambling

lumbering                     .

.                                    lurching

staggering                                    .

.                                              tottering

striding                                                   .

.                                                          marching

lunging                                                              .

we

embrace

.

.

.

I hope this works on your monitor.  The 2 perspectives should come evenly from either side to meet at “we / embrace”

Excitement builds as the

Counting down

The

lampposts

.

.

are

invisible

.

.

in

this mist

.

.

and

so the

.

.

haloed

bulbs,

.

.

floating,

glow:

.

.

UFOs

above

.

.

the

road.

.

.
