Literary Yard

Search for meaning

By: Ian Fletcher


Look! There she sits
as beautiful as ever
reminding me of how
she and I have been
in the hallowed zone
our love thus seeming
a transcendent reality
the rest of the world
but an ephemeral dream.

Ah! Radiant as always
she remains in the zone
holding her lover’s hand
with I cast out into the cold.
