The Unlikely Match
She needed an equal.
The one she had wasn’t working.
So, the harness loosened and
A new one came along.
She strove to be his.
He grew to be hers.
They matured at uneven paces,
Learning the important
To keep the balance;
Waiting for the other
To catch up or to slow down;
Not always understanding the what,
Or the how, but willing to
See the through.
They’re equals now, together
At the same time.
Each taking his turn at the lead.
Each watching the other with care.
Satisfied with the yoke that has no load.
Audio and Author Comment--
Another love story here. Maybe someday I will publish a book of Susan Patterson love poems. 😉
There are many types of loves in our lives. Some come quickly and just about knock us over. Others take longer to realize and make us stronger. No matter, all of our loves are important and need to be appreciated. skp
The poem, The Unlikely Match, is available in my book, Unnoticed Moments. The book is available at http://www.earlenegrey.com/unnoticed-moments.html
A Literary Company Comes to Life
Who is this Earlene Grey, anyway? Earlene Grey is the name of the company which publishes books written by Susan Patterson. Clear as mud? Alright, let's go back a bit.
When Susan Patterson first started writing, she didn't want anyone to know what she was doing. Crazy, yes. Still and all, Susan Patterson took the pen name of Earlene Grey. It was a play on the name of Earl Grey tea, you see. She wrote a lot of poetry with references to tea. Clever? Not so much.
Eventually Ms. Grey wrote less and less tea poetry. And, eventually Ms. Grey realized that a pen name was not necessary. So, Susan Patterson wrote under her own name. Finally.
However, the name of the company that produces the books readers have discovered and loved, is Earlene Grey, LLC. Kinda like Helena Rubenstein or Coco Channel or Estee Lauder. It's a better name than Poems R Us, isn't it?
