Infinite (Poem)

Infinite

We stretched our moment
in that Ozark sun, a mirror
that fluorescent-lit our origin
in light. Reality perhaps was
finite, a time and space
of potential we reflected, each
to the other. But consider:
of hundreds and thousands
of possibilities the forever
that was just you
and I.

I love this - I may steal it as an anniversary poem (but give you proper credit, of course).

A very tight and concise write. I love how you keep all the metaphors tightly like, and the line filled with a pleasant tension. This is just too good. I appreciate good poetry like this Maureen. Bravo.

Precise and concise. The juxtaposition of words shade the meanings. This piece feels like a painting, and the colors pop off the canvas illuminated half in light, half in shadow.

So very mature, this lover's poem. A gift of words that would make any heart swell.
