Adult Poetry Poetry Friday

[Poetry Friday] Time, Love, and Death


Fats here.

Last week, I watched the movie Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith. It was not popular among movie-goers and critics gave it a very low rating. Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching it. Maybe the movie is designed specifically for sappy people like me.

Today I am sharing three poems that reminded me of the the three abstracts that were mentioned in the movie: time, love, and death. Enjoy!

Poetry Friday round-up is hosted this week by Dori from Dori Reads!

  1. Beautiful. Dickinson’s words in particular just speak to me so movingly of the longing, the impatience, the agony of wanting to be united with the person you love, but not knowing how or when it will ever be. I am a fellow sappy person, a romantic dreamer, so I might have enjoyed that film, too!

    “Know it when you have it”, exactly right. Thanks for each one of these, Fats and for sharing about the movie. I probably would like it, too!


  3. I didn’t see the movie yet, but I’m interested. Nice poems, all three and well matched to those three abstracts.


  4. Beautiful poems. Dickinson is, as always, my favorite!

    Love this trio of poems!


  6. A wonderful trio. Love the final one by Bukowski. I delight in you now, with no waiting.
