One Single Impression -- Departed

Depart from me
so I may know
the joy
of your return.

Some distance and
a little space
within which
love may grow;
sunlight and
some tender tears
nourish the vine
that twines
our hearts,
strengthing the bonds
of love.

A sweet and gentle reminder of that which makes the heart grow fonder. Just lovely, Sue.

Dearest Sue-
I so resonate with this wisdom.

Space is vital for all living, breathing things...

The photo you put with your poem made me smile!

Thank you--

Amity said...

awesome way of rendering the prompt.

'distance makes the heart grow fonder'...and so depart or be far from each other will test how deep is our love for each other.

very nice Sue!

Yes, a certain amount of separateness is needed to nurture a relationship. You could call this one A poem from a Wise Woman, Sue.

You have such a gift Sue.

What a beautiful tribute to love and a wonderful interpretation of this prompt.

Wow! I love this one. A little time, a little space. Wonderful.

Sue, I've heard that line before. I need some time to think things over.
Except that didn't happen.
Instead it was a sweet little rendezvous. 'Thank God and Greyhound She's Gone' now.
The poet in you makes things come out right. Lovely.
