Human Wondering

Does hot coffee

With cream

Taste different

In your mouth?

What about cold

Water or bursting

Blueberries, sweet,

Tangy?

Does a lover’s kiss not feel

Warm, tender,

Wet, sensuous, liberating

on your lips?

Do socks not make your

Feet feel safe, cozy

On a cold, autumn night?

Can you not feel the sun

On your face no matter

The complexion, lines,

Wrinkles, shade, tone,

Creases?

Do you not look into a starlit

Night sky and notice the sliver

Glow of the moon?

Does your body not

Heave and grieve like mine?

Doesn’t your belly

Digest food?

Your lungs expand with

Each breath?

When you hold a beloved one’s hand

does this not soothe your wild,

fluttering heart?

Do we not all know death,

Birth, sweat, and salty tears?

My Pain, Your Joy

Your Hurts, my Love.

Our

Humanity.

    • Oh, thank you, Larry. Your words affirm, uplift, and open my heart. Never in my wildest imaginings did I ever know a poet lived inside of me and could be so gently set free. Thank you, my friend. I’m moved to tears. You are not the first to declare this to me, and each time I hear/read “you are a true poet,” I find myself humbled, grateful, honored.

    • Oh, thank you for your kind words, and reflections! I had forgotten about the Merchant of Venice! How perfect! Thank you for this, Charlotte!! Yes, indeed-“shared humanity through the ages.” 🙂

  1. Goodness me, Laura. Such a moving poem. Words to lighten the heart, bring a tear to the eye, a sparkle to the senses. Truly amazing. The number of words multiply into volumes of sensuality, hurts and love and humanity. Thank you, Laura. So much.

  2. Laura, you always being such comfort in all you say…and truly believe.
