These three words


These three words

are not fragile words

on which only dreams are built.


They are solid words

hewn from heart wood

shaped by experience.


Put your weight on these words

for they will bear you

should ground shift

or floods fill

or friends fail.


I love you.


Joseph J Field

New wine


New wine

    is for new

       wine skins

Mature wine

      I crave

Ruby red

     ripe

       velvet

Scents of summers

     gone

          but

            remembered

The taste of you

An empty Chair   November 2012


One day

    when you or I

           will face an empty chair

Let’s not pretend that

       our lost love

              still lingers there

                    - a scent

            - the faintest stirring of the air

-

But in the darkest hour

       and through the bitter pain

- this hope

that on a world

         lovely and renewed

             we shall meet

                     and we shall love again


Joseph J Field


Note - this “love” I believe to be agape rather than eros
