Love It

On a Bench at Alki Beach

Across the water Seattle shines;
the bay’s subtle waves flicker
its reflection almost flapping
like a sheet in the wind. It’s late
December, but the clouds aren’t holding
still and the moon hovers over the skyline,
wide open without obscuration.
On this bench along the edge of the path
looking out at all of this, you let me
put my arm around you.

Dan Morris

I picked a new favorite Dan poem. I love this one. We had our first kiss on that bench.
Daniel, I love you so much.

This poem makes me want to cry. It's sad and beautiful and I love it. I have to admit this, I didn't know what to expect from Dan's poetry. I've been so curious to see what it was like. I knew it wouldn't be sing songy and lyrical and silly but I guess I didn't expect it to be this either. Please tell Dan I love it. If he publishes his poems I'll buy a copy and keep it in my nightstand with the rest of my favorite poetry books.
