More poetry

My first triolet for poetrychallenge (haven't posted it yet, as may yet revise before the deadline), and another poem which came out of writing it.


Observer, observed.

I watch her as she watches from the corner
The strangely radiant girl who isn't speaking.
She seems content for others to ignore her.
I watch her as she watches from the corner
And wonder what she's thinking - do we bore her?
And does she see these glances I keep sneaking?
I watch her as she watches from the corner
The strangely radiant girl who isn't speaking.



The Uncertainty Principle

The ups and the downs of the day are forgotten
As, charged with strange longing, I drink in her beauty
Not breaking the charm of the night and the stillness.
The contact electric, the truth undetermined
Desires unspoken, I cherish this moment.


(and, yes, those titles do hint at a dash of quantum flavour in the mix - in the second poem especially)

Will put these up on my website soon, but our main computer is currently very ill (Matt spent most of Easter Monday on repeated attempts to reinstall Windows following fatal crashes) and although our secondary computer has internet access, it's not as nice to use (plus I'd have to download the file transfer software again, etc. etc.) so I'll wait awhile & see if we can sort out the main one.
