Biology Lesson

By on Jul 7, 2016 in Poetry | 2 comments

Sharing an umbrella is good
Sharing a meal is better
Sharing a bed is best
It’s not the act, but the intention
Not the word, but the awareness of who we are.

A biology lesson –
“Class, what separates us from our cousins, the chimpanzees?”
“An interior world, new each day, that pushes poems forth,
those written and those not.”

Sharing a word is good
Sharing a feeling is better
Sharing existence is best.


  1. Yes dear Lou! Sharing existence is best! Sharing meals, memories and words, makes life enjoyable and happy!
