You’re Hard to Read

You’re hard to read;

complicated,

multi-faceted,

with cavernous depths untapped

by casual communication,

blotted missive,

dog-eared corners,

obscure references to images

buried in time and place,

needing a good dusting, an

Ephesian library.

What hidden treatise

lurks within your leaves?

You reduce me to an illiterate,

a picture-book primer to your Tolstoy;

what words do I use

to translate you to my heart?

    Reblogged this on Rob's Lit-Bits and commented:
    My poetry is inspired by the works of countless others, dead and alive, male and female. Melody has become a new friend and inspiration. I hope you make her yours as well.

    WOW and WOW–I have to go with Mr Rife, it’s “brilliant” (and I now have to look up Ephesian). God bless you today–love, Caddo
