A Valentine Poem: Love Passed Over Us Like a Cloud
“Love Passed Over Us Like a Cloud” is the first offering in my new Short Poem Video Series. Over the decades of reading poetry in public I seldom include my very short poems. Yet they are some of my favorites. The Short Poem Video Series will bring these under one minute poems to you for the first time. The poems are enhanced with music and visuals by community artists folded into wonderful videos that you can watch here or on your phone or tablet wherever you are. Please share them with your friends, family and community.
I will post new Short Poem Videos in the weeks to come. The videos are produced and edited by Estuary Press as a collaboration between me and my valentine, Paul Richards. Enjoy them!
LOVE PASSED OVER US LIKE A CLOUD
Love passed over us like a cloud.
The air was filled with sandalwood and secrets.
It could have gone on forever
but clouds, like the moon,
have schedules and duties to perform.
So we moved on
to rush through love.
