Poetry of Robert Stone: Words of mine that never stop

Words of mine that never stop
~ a sonnet on the ninth anniversary of meeting a young artist
The day we met no future was foreseen.
You handed me the painting of the chime,
I gave you asking price agreed between.
To hear your senior talk would be last time.

Small world had some unlikely things in store.
You were the one who showed my friend around
when he for me walked through an unlocked door
to check some far from me nearby him ground.

Surprise that twice we each were far from home
but very close the friends we visited.
Creative arts the world I would we roam
but something seems to bar the quizzes thread.

Nine years of words of mine that never stop
and your advice that patience be my prop.
~ Robert Stone, 12 February 2016
