Covert – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 Lines – Spy



“I wait with silent passion for one gesture, one glance from you.”  Rumi



I can feel you watching and
if I turn around I know I’ll catch you
pretending not to but we never
say a word to spoil this endless
covert game we lovers play.

  1. Love Rumi’s “silent passion” … tinderbox, just waiting to be lit … your poem captures that so well.

  3. I prefer watching my wife in everyday life when she feels unobserved. But maybe this was about something else…
