Poetic cue for the #OctWriPoMo challenge for the day is ” Capture a feeling or relationship. Do not tell, just show it”.

What a beautiful prompt! Feelings are complicated and so are relationships. It takes years to build on one and minutes to destroy it. Here is the poem :

TABLE FOR TWO 

Are you by yourself” receptionist asked politely,
I said “A room for two”( as I may have company).

Towels emanated moistened musk of your being,
A fortnight since you got drenched in this stream.

Turning in for the night, I outstretched my hand,
Silk sheets ruffled softly as your thought slipped in.

Lawn table was set for two. I told waitress to let it be,
Said “Don’t remove that plate “( I may have company).

“You look bright, hope you slept well, “said petit girl,
“Have sumptuous breakfast please, a long day ahead”.

( She had perhaps seen faces in morning headline,

It was our scarred torn picture, but you looked divine).

Strolling out of lobby, I said a silent prayer to The Frey*,

And vowed to come back to use room for what I paid.

FREY * – noun, Scandinavian Mythology. the god of peace, prosperity, and marriage.
