For M.M. 1992/2022

Stretching into love again

After a hiatus of years

Lips need old lips

To see past new tears

Our hands hung

In Time’s hammock

Patiently waiting

For a rose Moon

To lift moist memory

From its quiet Garden

Though lovers’ love is past

And youth’s blind passion

Now splashes in the hurrying verse

Of loving recollection

Your warm words have made a new home

Nesting ever so tightly in an old poet’s heart

Dan Corjescu teaches at the University of Tübingen’s “Studium Professionale” Program
