Almost Home - Poem by Sandra Fowler

Remembering a Valentine sent to me by a poet from India,1989
You meet the moment with your solace thought.
Your fingers sketch a gray house far away.
Its window lights are warming cool resolve.
I think and know that we are almost home.

They tell me that a red bird has no soul
And yet I choose it for my metaphor.
Its spirit skims above half-frozen roads.
One hand is clapping for the death

With beautiful precision how your words
Eliminate each snowflake from my mind.
Yes, I accept your red bird valentine
Praising the strength that thought it over seas.

    Such a simple trigger - a Valentine's card - and yet what a beautiful bouquet of poetic flowers grow from it. Your 'soulless' red bird is particularly evocative 'And yet I choose it for my metaphor.' Sandra, you and metaphor are like Domingo and Pavarotti. You sing beautifully together. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Very beautiful exposition of poetic imagery.in the plexus time space & distance, well textured along with symmetry, suggests the sense of ingenuity expressed in the poem - the acceptance of valentine from a souless bird & finally trans-assimilation of gestures suigeneris. well expressed Sandra, love it how its flow.
