for Ross

...please be kind to the young poet who wrote these, for Ross was the first boy I ever loved. He was a nineteen-year-old with ashen-blond hair, gentle gray eyes, and shy smiles for the twenty-year-old me.

When I read the 'retrieved' nr. 15, I couldn't help myself re-reading the ones before and after.
What I didn't notice before is, that they so much resemble watercolors: a light etching with a pencil and then filled in with delicate colours.
to gently caress a thought filled with you
is one of those lines, elusive and delicate.
It was a reminder for me, to now and then revisit them and just enjoy them again.

Thank you, Peter. It's lovely that you equate these poems with watercolors. In many ways I think the term 'sketch' is very appropriate for them. At the time I wrote them, the sheer intensity of feeling left me not wanting to work on them much, if that makes any sense. Now I know why Petrarca, the great Italian poet, published his Sonnets under the title of 'Fragments'; it's seems a poem – any poem – never says exactly all the things in the poet's heart.

I suppose that's the way it's meant to be.

Thanks again for a wonderful review.
