COMPANY

by Denis J. Ryan Harman
(Dahlonega, Georgia, USA)


SHE SAT QUIETLY SIPPING TEA
FROM A PORCELAIN CUP
WITH HER HEAD EVER SO SLIGHTLY
TILTED TO THE SIDE
WITH A FIXED GAZE LOOKING PAST THE
SUNLIT WINDOW AS IF
PRESENTLY SOMEONE SHE KNEW WOULD BE COMING
RISING FROM HER CHAIR CLEANING THE TABLE
SAVE FOR ONE CUP AND SAUCER
WHICH NOW GLIMMERING IN THE RISING SUN
SHOWED A TINY WEB
OF UNKNOWN TIME

Beautiful but sad. Has alot of depth and even soul searching moments as I read this poem.
My interpretation was....as she waits for the
company that never comes...waiting, waiting, waiting.
