Why Can’t It Be?

Why Can’t It Be?

why?

why can’t it be?

why can’t we meet

somewhere in the horizon

where the earth and the sky delightedly unite

or, in between the colors of the rainbow

and far beyond the clouds?

even just a little bit under the sky?

why?

just why?

i’ll wait for you with all my warmth and brilliance

smiling upward at heavens, knowing  that

in the honeyed light of the evening, you will be there

blossoming like as a flower blossomed against the pure sunlight

but, why?

just why?

why can’t it be?

i only hope that you too

will wait for me, as you affectionately welcome

the burning hue of the sunset, suggesting the impending night

where you, with all your glory, shines in luster, and  in gleam

please wait, I beg of you, wait,  I supplicate

but, why?

just why?

why can’t it be?

why can’t there be a resting place,

a rendezvous, where we can hold each other

longer, passionately, fervently, ardently

and maybe, just maybe, kiss,

our first kiss

but, why?

just why?

why are we

two star – crossed lovers?

NaPowriMo Day 28

Our prompt today (optional, as always), is to write a poem that poses a series of questions. The questions could be a mix of the serious (“What is the meaning of life?”) and humorous (“What’s the deal with cats knocking things off tables?”), the interruptive (“Could you repeat that?”) and the conversational (“Are those peanuts? Can I have some?”). You can choose to answer them – or just let the questions keep building up, creating a poem that asks the reader to come up with their own answer(s).

  1. I LOVE this poem, SweetMich! The sun! The moon! Star-crossed lovers!
    As a little girl I always thought about how as we were saying ‘see you later’ to the sun, we said ‘hello!’ to the moon… they so rarely appeared at the same time and place. 🙂 You’ve captured what I used to think about and you did it so beautifully and so creatively! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂
    PS…when it comes to star-crossed lovers…I always think of Romeo and Juliet…what a royal mess! 😮 😉

    1. Aw, thank you Carolyn so glad i captured your thoughts bout the sun and the moon – i too always thought of the sun and moon as two star – crossed lovers, the need for each’s existence is undeniable yet, they rarely or non at all appear together at the same time.

      And Romeo and Juliet? Ohh, they too are an epuc mess😉😉😉
