Dearest Ruth

Poem By Fred Babbin

Dearest Ruth
You are my Breath
You are my Heart
You are my Life
You are my Third
Dimension - when we talk.
When we talk,
You are my Love

When we talk, I see
The gold grass field
And light o’ the sun
And my red love for you.
Kiss me, kiss me,
Kiss me now.

Comments about Dearest Ruth

What a beautiful poem and how lucky Ruth is to have this!
This is an expression of love so poignant that it brings tears to my eyes, Fred. I love your unexpected use of colour - the red of your love is such a sudden flare of passion, the gold so rich.
Just LOVE the honest Passion in this Fred! Well Done! Roger Cornish.
I like the connections here implied to all that is, the sense of your interconnectedness and that of your Ruth to the natural world. Lovely poem, Fred.

A Thought On Thought

I think that all higher animals - primates, mammalian and ornithic pets, etc. 'think' to a certain extent.

Why do I think?
There is no alternative.

This was once
a very grand grave,

Am I O.K., Jack?

Our heating system speaks
but I can't understand the words – yet.
And the the toilet flush sounds like
advertising on TV,

I’m pregnant again
with you my poems
My thoughts and feelings
Have screwed my brain

Poetry – this madness
This feeling-thought
that looks like thought
that holds my brain
