Connect #Poetry

For dVerse Poets

Your soul connects to mine

like a constellation,

Every single moment,

Every conversation.

Your heart speaks old truths

so few could understand.

Which star do you call home?

Searching the night sky

Kneeling in a land

who lives in slumber,

My light has

dulled to somber,

I am still praying

that you can feel




that you can hear

my silence calling,

As my heart still wanders.

  3. Gretchen, your poem
    connects me to your
    ponderous constellation.
