High-pitched
giggles of sparrows
no longer echo
inside the cave
of my ears

before the kraa kraa
of your crows
disrupt your evening’s
fiction dreams.

Yet what a gift
that despite
our clock’s
different schemes

your early
and my early
daily meet
in between.

  1. Being well acquainted with time zones and jet lag I identify with the voice here. It’s all very good but the two times meeting in the middle speaks to me of effort to make the time zone valley work. And if I missed it, it spoke to me. Good job. Thanks for writing so true.

  2. Love the juxtaposition of the sparrows’ giggles and the crows’ kraa kraa – very effective sound effects. This could be dVerse poets with our ‘clock’s different schemes’. I love the final stanza!

  3. One of the best I have read from you. The beauty of this is simplicity. With a constraint of 44 words, the magic that you have woven for me brings me down to happy tears. Our clocks might have different schemes, but they beat in the same rhythm, the rhythm of our love :*

      2. Oh my goodness, Sister–2 jobs!! I will be praying extra for your strength and peace. Do you have time for emails? Probably not, haha! I have things to share–but not in comment box. However, I’ve begun preparations for the holiday season–I made a beautiful seashell and bead Christmas wreath. I’ve never been good at “crafts”, but this turned out so well–I’m really pleased!! 🙂 LOVE YOU MUCHLY!!! ❤

  4. You had me at “High pitched giggles of sparrows”. I like the way you found a common place of meeting within the distance, bringing normality and hope. I have lived the LDR and happy that we are now under the same roof. 🙂
