Spinning and Spooning

Regardless of life circumstance
We all spin
in the same orbit
and lay our heads down
at day’s end.

When bodies touch
nestled like spoons
companionship stacked safely
away from forks and knives
now unused

cuddling gleams
with brightness
as polished silver
reflects light
near and afar...

precious metals
shining together
like the creamer
when it spies
its sugar-mate.

About this poem:
“We all spin in the same orbit” from one of Rachael_0622 poems* and her comment that one of candleinthewind’s poems** struck a note with its line “no one to cuddle” inspired me to write this poem.

* “Love hungry ripe ready to reciprocate”
** “Candle in the wind...”

Hi, ReaderOfSouls,
It's nice to "see" you again. During yesteryears when I used to make it into Poet's Corner more frequently, I always loved reading your wonderful posts. Thank you for reading and offering such a nice comment about mine. It is much appreciated.

I think it beautiful what you have written. I think it even more beautiful while I perceive your thoughts. However it may be in the end, it matters not. Quickness of emotion often results in an even quicker slowness of ability to respond appropriately...I will stand first, not for attention, I will stand last, out of shame with even the slightest degree of guilt. In other words..... You may stand somewhat alone, you are not.......Efff, Joy. You consistently exhibit a truly rare Christ-like are a Peacemaker. What a beautiful gift to be bestowed upon a person....I get agitated like any other, in the end........I cannot match your words...You have proven yourself superior to me so many times that it is simply incalculable.....Rachael....You have just witnessed the true......take it as you may, be wise not to abuse it...

Hi, candy kid,
Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment on my poetic offering. I am pleased you found some beauty in it. When a poem is written, it belongs to the poet. Once shared, it is out of his/her control. The impact a poem has on the reader is independent from and, arguably, could be more important than the poet’s intentions. Whereas my intentions always arise from a place of love, we all know about destinations and intentions.

Hi, DK1001, Thank you for taking the time to read and your nice comment on my poem. Although I don’t post much anymore, I do keep writing, a lot—especially during this pandemic. But, as I’ve been told, quantity does not equal quality. Hi, hedistuff, Thanks for reading my poem. Although I don’t know what you think of my poem, I am happy to (still be alive, and) be considered one of your favorite characters. Right back at you!
Enjoyed reading it Gnj4u thumbs up Thank you :)
