These Words Have Absolutely Nothing to Do With the Weather


These Words Have Nothing to Do With the Weather


Although you

may yet

turn, or indeed,

still run

away and try

to hide

behind the

unfurled folds,

of your

faulty umbrella ..

I hereby

assign a mere


guarantee that

I shall for

always hear,

feel, taste,

smell and see

you smiling ..

Full on, that is

and through

the very many

tangled beards

and veils ..

Those, which

now line

the path on both

sides of this,

your most recent

of sainted

departures ..

And although

I should

not blame you,

for the weather

darling ..

I know that in

all honesty ..

I most surely do

and for

so many other

things, besides ..

          • Teddy.15

            I see an image of a love that once was, peeping in and out again,. I often wonder why people are cruel when it comes to love, I have come somewhat to the conclusion it's pure selfishness with an ugly ego mixed in. lol πŸ’–πŸ€£ sorry to go on dear boy!

            • Neville

              neva a problem .. my absolute pleasure entirely .. ❀️

              Some folks change with the weather, some are sunny all the time, others live under a cloud. Then, there are the realists, who get snowed, get sunburnt, or carried away on winds of promise.
              This poem, it seems to me, is about a relationship that is on and off, again and again. Perhaps a stormy one, where she brings the rain. Enjoyed it. - phil A.

              • Neville

                it seems you have us weighed up .. gonna start calling you Hawkeye Phil .. thanks a million my friend .. Neville

              • orchidee

                And now some words that do have something to do with the weather - sun, rain, wind, whatever ya fancy! lol.
                It's educational on 'ere, as I've said!

              • Christina8

                • Bella Shepard

                  Love is such a tangled web, that if we had the power to lay straight, every strand, would we? It's the unpredictibility that keeps us on our toes, as does the weather. Beautifully crafted and a joy to read dear Nev. Wishing you fair skies!

                  • Neville

                    fair skies always do it for me .. thanks for visiting & for those words of sapience & insight .. Neville

                  • L. B. Mek

                    'feel, taste,
                    smell and see
                    you smiling ..
                    Full on, that is'
                    (reading your pearls of poetic wisdom
                    my cherished friend
                    is like having a conversation
                    with someone who has known us a long time
                    you imbue so much relatable accessibility
                    and versions of a past, we somehow recognise,
                    allowing us to delve deep in your ink and excavate
                    our very own private answers
                    to questions, we would otherwise
                    would still be happy to keep repressed
                    pretending, we didn't know they were there...)
                    thank you!

                    • Neville

                      I dont think they can possibly get much better than that brother Mek .. thank you most kindly ..

                      β€˜ faulty umbrella β€˜ makes me think maybe she hasn’t enough protection around her .. and that perhaps it β€˜ rains on her too much.. she sounds a bit like a sad pained person maybe .. who isn’t in the sun enough lol

                      Great poem interesting words .. πŸ™‚

                      • Neville

                        you are a little ray of sunshine Violet .. bless you & always .. 🌦️πŸŒ₯οΈβ›…πŸŒž
