adoration

Sitting across from one another,
she speaks
of mundane intricacies;
he gazes at her.

Everyone notices
his affection for his wife:
his smile,
his iridescent look,
his patience,
his quiet
self.

My eyes glaze over
as she continues.
I do not listen,
only nodding accordingly and politely.
Perhaps others
notice my rudeness
at the dinner table.

My mind wanders,
but does not stray.
I only think of
you,
but
no one
notices.

:) I know how that feels!

I live this life, but only a few will be touched by it.

I like the way you describe her speaking. Connections and disconnections are equally powerful.

BTW, it would be difficult to explain how I get the links to different blogs on the homepage, since I'm not that computer savvy. There's a way to program them on the template. I'd ask someone you know who has some background in programming.

oh, another paradise of words! i shall immediately link your blog to mine. ^_^

as regards your query, i advise you to go to www.blogrolling.com. just register, input the URLs you want shown on your site, then include the script on your blog template (where you want the list to appear).

p.s. i was so moved by your poem entitled "Modest Proposal." something to do with what you said about... change. *sniff*

I notice you,
only because
my mind wanders
the same way.
