Blue jeans on a handsome man.


Blue Jeans were made for men like you
with belly button peeks
and scruffy head of contented peace.
Soft smile and soft manner.
Hands that gently gesture
and eyes that have seen more than time.

Bare feet suits your aura
and those toes make merry
for they signal your relaxation
and relaxing is needed here.

I gaze upon you
in rapt contemplation
for that winging thought
that settled just now
shows clearly on your face
that you are content
and seeking inward.

Fingers looped
in your blue jeans
as you casually commune
with the world that birthed you.

Low-slung
and soft-spoken
the fabric suits you
and the sigh that escapes
is fully my heart.

Blue jeans.
They will be the death
of my racing pulse
one day.

  1. Gorgeous double portrait poem. I like your poetry more and more. It is really precise in its sentiment and feeling and it subtly elevates the everyday into something more. In it’s way it is radically different from almost all other poetry in bloggoland in that it is always more than it claims to be. Most poetry is vastly overblown and claims to be more than it is, yours is always subtle and precise and perfectly poised. I like it a lot.

  2. Oh my…thats the biggest compliment Paul I cannot begin to say how much it means to me. I thank you very much.
