"Jasmine" Poem by Thomas Herr



Jasmine                                9/7/13

By Thomas Herr

You’ve appeared
As you’ve done
Before
As it was, we were, we are?

Woody Allen
Quiet
Delicate
Buttered Popcorn

You appear to be alone.

Transcending
Time has no value
Sad
Resigned

Art Deco
The Row behind me
The Row in front
Distant Kisses

I am not alone but I am alone today

Above all others
Spirit rises
Solemn
Beauty

Golden Hair
Familiar features
Coming through
Ages past

I am convinced that I’ve known you

Alone
Inside
Gentleman’s Path
Separated by Light

Alone again - Cigarette
Outside
Shadow sitting
Dark City stoop

But I’m not sure how you feel

Presence felt
Magnet pull
Universal
Visit me

Nothing said
Nothing known
Visit me
Visit you

So I stare at the screen

Circle round
Coming back
You are gone
But we touched

Feeling hope
Feeling blue
Follow directions
Feeling you

I will call you Jasmine

Please forgive me
For what I may
Or may not
Have done

Eons have passed I think I’m still the same.
