an apple...for you

just this big--
maybe even less--
encapsulating the whole universe
in a palpitation

thanks. not always the case with couples who had gone through the same experience when young. her absence from home has suddenly made me an old man in a spring season. the season is due to end by this month-end when she comes back with our daughter and grandchild. see how many poems i have posted in november! see what i can do without her eye on me, always suspecting i am up to some mischief... but what to do? that is the poetry of life.
don't be mistaken. you too are going to be like that; it is the basic characteristic of the species. she too used to write as beautifully as you when your age. (and i have a vague feeling she still can do it if she can stop being down-to-earth practical handling a heavy load of responsibilities nowadays, including keeping moored to the earth.)
