alone, steven humphreys, poetry

Alone

We are not so alone

there are the birds

tweeting

and washing

their beautiful

colored feathers

in our backyard

birdbaths

we can hear echoes

of the goings on

in the world

over

beyond our fence

within

flowers grow

giving fragrance

freely

limbs reach out

offering their embrace

lizards do their pushups

in the sun

raising their heads

and nod approvingly

joyful is the world

narrow is your pain

laugh and others

will join you

in your mirth

but cry

my poor dear

friend

cry

and you must

cry alone

and

drink

of

life’s

misery

swallowing

every

drop
