must be time for a poem

by shirley mcgill

morning come with frigid air, cooling me, wind in my hair.

the blues like days when no sun shines.

must be time for a poem.

the sun was out. my heart dropped out. hold my hand into

sunrise, and never take your eyes off mine.

must be time for a poem.

if i have to write it for you, i will do so. if i had to tell it, i’d

say i don’t know if your love is for the world to see.

must be time for a poem…

to write itself; unheralded dreams, flow onto the page

like verbal actors rush to the stage; out of the cage.

must be time for a poem.

the indigo blue of gratitude; the red passion of love, are my

reminders of your purple mercy. life is blue, as

the ocean is a poem.

the ocean is our home.
