Poem


I Bring You #2

By Dru Carole Gibson, Army

Writing Type: Poem

I bring you the apple of my knowledge, 
My forbidden fruit on a velvet cushion 
With beaded tassels. 
You laughed in delight at my clown shoes 
As they danced into your heart. 
Mock river dust, like turtles creeping across the road, 
Blows down chimneys, called out your name 
While rancid rain was puddling 
In the comers of the square. 
We danced through the rivers of laughter, 
The cicadas calling continually, buzzing the summer skies, 
The heat, a heavy blanket 
Pressing on our hearts. 
The circus came to town, 
and laughter filled the color-lit night sky 
As popcorn and peanuts scattered on the ground. 
We sailed our songs across the river’s mist 
To echo on faraway shores.
