>Arch Lines


we kissed beneath the
arch of who we thought
we were
just two kids
plain as notebook paper
line upon line
our stories told
as our shadows
settled under us

Sure, a picture is worth a thousand words, but can you spare a few and link up some of yours?

  1. >My first thought when I saw the photo was of the St. Louis Arch.You caught the young love of this photo, and caught it well indeed. Excellent, Jerry.

  2. >Excellent poem, Jerry. Shadows being cast, line upon line, as the story of their lives had been written. Also really like the part Claudia just quoted; adding that my favorite part occurs at the end just after. "As our shadows / settled under us" Great finishing lines.

Thanks for your time and thoughts.
