Together for Now by Francis Conlon

Poem

A glance—a thought of being together,
The muse strikes, oh, so romantic,
That image is light as a feather.

It grows ambitious, and appears clever,
Given time, it can turn gigantic,
A glance—a thought of being together.

So many odd points to this endeavor.
Can images again raise the Titanic?
That image is light as a feather.

Now a drowning romantic, such displeasure,
‘Twas all along merely pedantic,
A glance—a thought of being together.

The emotional ocean has no bellwether,
But flows freely with its dynamic,
Great are the currents, ‘tho seldom with treasure.

A perilous fantasy with no tether,
Now harbored safely in a shore panoramic,
A glance—a thought of being together,
That image is light as a feather.
