words: the poem i didn’t write

November 4, 2009

I just read this poem on one of my favourite blogs, ill seen, ill said, and really loved it. So simple, but poignant. I think it perfectly captures a moment.

The Poem I Didn’t Write by Raymond Chandlerparis

Here is the poem I was going to write
earlier, but didn’t
because I heard you stirring.
I was thinking again
about that first morning in Zurich.
How we woke up before sunrise.
Disoriented for a minute. But going
out onto the balcony that looked down
over the river, and the old part of the city.
And simply standing there, speechless.
Nude. Watching the sky lighten.
So happy and thrilled. As if
we’d been put there
just at that moment.
