Karen Schindler has given us sensuous and visual poetry before (Nature’s Parade, undiscovered, Coming Home),
but today’s selection contains a different kind of puzzle. Hint: follow
the asterisks, but not in the intuitive direction! This might just be
the perfect poem for a stormy night when people apart can hear the same
thunder across the wide distance. Read more of Karen’s varied writing
at her blog.

Words on a page
words on a phone
Frequent words
needed words
gentle words
Words that
feel like
Without touch
without smell
Without tongues
tasting skin
could love
be growing
It almost
feels like
Seeds of love
searching for purchase
in newly
fertile ground
