That Rouge Of Love – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“How many passions cling to this wanderer’s sleeves?” Ikkyuu

That Rouge Of Love

Amidst the pale blossom wild
you were everywhere I looked 
without looking at all when you
appeared in my jolted awareness,
where I had been waiting, though
not for you or so I thought and 
here was not the place of my dream,
we were not, and yet we were, 
there, across the bustle of the crowd,
inseparable, enjoined by the thread 
of destiny, that rouge of love.
