Love Poems of February #11 of 14

February 23, 2013

Here’s the 11th of 14 new poems that have something to do with love that I plan to write during February.

Call it NaLoPoMo National Love Poem Month.

I purposefully did NOT want to use a specific prompt for this. Yet force/allow something to be written. Enjoy.

Several poets may be participating in writing a poem a day or every other day in February. Join us and write some poems. Post a link to your love poems here at this Facebook page: Randomly Accessed Poetics which is a William James Lindberg project.

Love in the Abstract
Christopher J. Jarmick

I didn’t want this poem about love
to repeat
something I wrote earlier.
I didn’t want it inspired by a prompt
popular song lyric, or a visual from a photograph
painting, or a scene from a movie.
I imagined an abstract painting
with strait, angled and curved lines
where colors
represented various emotions,
but I couldn’t hold one image of this
clearly enough
to describe it with words.

  1. A rehashing of the age old problem the great thinkers of humankind have run up against that there is something deep in our lives that is a complete undefinable mystery.
