Awaking as Lovers (OUTLOUD)

a poem by Inner Circle Award winner – John D. Robinson (FROM RED DANCE).

Folks, listen to John read his poem Awaking as Lovers. It doesn’t get any better than this.

I was going to write of

waking up at dawn in a

bus-shelter, robbed of my

money, jacket and shoes

and walking home bare-

foot and fragile but it

was a poem of beauty

and tenderness, like

when Carmelina and I

first awoke as lovers

in my studio-room,

sparsely furnished,

bleak but friendly:

I made some coffee

before she awoke and I

looked at her sleeping,

I still do that now,

over 3 decades later.
