A Poem by Leslie Philibert

After a pause a short poem

stepping at the sun
with written ankles
our lips divided

the sun profiled two faces
passing a warm stone

Have you ever fallen in love with a house? Have you ever fallen in love with your own drafted dream mansion?

How archaic notions of sexuality and virginity are foisted primarily on girls.

Sensational as always...your poetry has the impact of summer after a long eclipse, so very beautiful Leslie! :)

Subtle and thought-provoking. Because it's not just two lovers kissing in sunset... it goes deeper, in my percpective. The kiss might have been an exchange of goodbyes, stones might feel warm but they're also hard and you choke on them. The stone to me also felt like a sickness being pass from the person to the other. Written ankles was the most powerful line for me. Shackles of destiny and pre-written events.

Love the sweetness in the brevity!
Thanks for sharing.

Oh how much I have missed your ability to offer such profound poetry filled with pathos and images in so few words. A sunflower type experience that appears to separate two people but there still remains such warm memories.
