Monday Poem

Today I am digging a hole, finding the weakest points, the places where I might hide.
I am saving my love, the memory of rivers and cool green places.
I am saving the sun: warm on my back, before I close my eyes
before I descend into darkness
Later they will find me, in the walls
suspended like a secret in amber
some rare precious thing
a letter of love no one will know how to decipher,
hidden
while the wars raged on.

    Thanks for posting this tender and lovely poem, Megan.

    The tone of the neighbourhood always improves when the poets creep out to have their say. I notice Robert Berold also posted some poems today. Must be poetry week!
