Urban Free Verse Poetry: Tender Tugs of Love

Cobblestones have cracks
I’ve lost you in one again.

A dark, dingy place of debris: my countless times
of quiet emptiness.

I felt silence. Distant under your work schedule.
(Distant and not cracks.)

Tender tugs of love petals sent to you,
and nothing back.

My keen senses become fine-tuned
to the great efforts, you put forth:
like busy beavers rebuilding a dam after
a summer flash flood.

How do I sense this from you?

The quick short messages, messages of briefness,
of where you’re at the moment when a cat
has stolen your tongue from your mouth.

There isn’t a metaphor for grinding work.
But the strength to persist day after day.

Today, the structure of life,
changes in the rain drop falling on broken pavement.

I watch as a squirrel hovers under green, under canopy.

A once busy man now brings,
Starbucks coffee to a gray day.

Some days here in Seattle bring thunder and rain.
If I could have more days like this,
sipping coffee with him is bliss.

These days are gifts.
