2020-12-15 – Buried Treasure

Two People Have Died Hunting For an Eccentric Art Dealer's Buried Treasure  Chest | artnet News

i knew you true,
but not..

well enough to
know you
were

undercover,

beneath the weight
of warring
weathers,

spent, we slacked
our line..

to a connection
so painfully
profound

it caved beneath
the pressure
of habit,

our yawning cups
weren’t open

to the rich burden
of love’s buried
treasure,

so, we never
dug it
up..

no, we never
sipped our
cup.

      • I’m really glad that some of it resonates with you because I often feel quite alien in my thinking and i know my writing’s an acquired taste. Heh. Regarding the embarrassment it’s ok, I meant it playfully. I think it’s kind of funny I’m so tech inept! 🙂 Cheers back at you from Ottawa!

      • I only meant it playfully, i just found it funny. 🙂 and I think it’s really special when we can connect with someone’s words profoundly and I am quite pleased my poems offer a bit of that. Hope your holiday season has gone well
