in time they are linked


He is a slinger of syllables

a turner of phrase

with bouquets of words

he denies her no praise

He is her epigramman

Her heart is his canvas

and he paints it with love

his lips are his brush

he shivers a body he knows not of

He is her epigramman


They touch with a screen

clicking passionate page

nothing can stop them

not time.......not distance.......not age

He is her epigramman

Lip spun, and finger sewn

on this web of love

different grounds lay beneath them

but the same moon above

He is her epigramman

Different styles and settings

but this is the same

that no matter how different

the writing remains

He is her epigramman

If nothing else

in time they are linked

with the sheer love of word

and the passion for ink

He is her epigramman

With technology's shove

they are pen pals of old

reading each other

in italic and bold

He is her epigramman


Funny and beautiful

his words simply move her

each of his new ones

could not be read sooner

He is her epigramman

So by the lake

or the basement so dark

with every word written

each leaves their mark

He is her epigramman


Spinning short tales

of clever and rhyme

she begs he keep writing

until stoppage of time


He is her epigramman

Written in complete friendship, love, admiration, and affection- The pink umbrella
