Flirting

Jingle Poetry Challenge










We dance around each other
like planets in orbit
Pulled and held by a gravity
We don’t understand.

But we do know
That if we ever touch
It will be the end
of innocence.

  1. Beautiful, metaphysical poem, Stafford. The mix of art and cosmology and theology is wonderful, and very poignant.

  3. Interesting, and as usual so "right" there. I liked it very much. And I think you are right about the innocence, but only a very wise man would know this.

  7. "..held by a gravity
    We don’t understand."

    Just one of the mysteries of mutual attraction. Nice one, Stafford.

  15. Superb. The end of innocence... you create a very evocative image here in just a few words, and the final line kicked me right in the gut. Sign of a good poem. Word economy, imagery that elicits emotion. Bravo

    So! What's The Problem
    Just * Secret Moments*
    T'ween Them and You

    Okay Till * Ego Tripping*
    Becomes * Addiction *
    And * SHALLOW * Rules

    Then All That * Zapping *
    And Secret Mapping
    With * OBSERVATION *
    Brings Pain To * FOOLS *
