Lonely Days are Meant for Two


I know the lonely days by heart.


Even as a child

floating my ship to school

across enemy seas,

with its peppermint sails unfurled,

I fought dragons

and demon gnats

alone ...


Share the lonely days with me

and I'll show you castles

only I know about...



lavender books

and clouds of steam

from the tea pot...


Lonely days were meant for two.




Thanks for sharing the lonely days with me!
