LOVER’S HEART BREAK

The first signs of August moon brightens the sphere
The expansive lands spread till they meet up with the infinite sky
The winding rivers are full and clear
Songs of frogs and crickets rise up to pierce clouds high
At the terminus we’re alone, our sleeves are wet
We face each other holding hands, too overcome to speak
Tonight we part in different directions, never again to together get
To think of this may cause each lover’s heart to break

  1. Wonderful poem. The line that really jumps out at me is: At the terminus we’re alone, our sleeves are wet. The use of the word “terminus” is so natural with the flow of the poem, and there are two obvious meanings, but there is something more, a mystery that is captured in the rest of the line. It takes the poem beyond the surface story you conjure so well.
