A collection of quietly beautiful and surprisingly humourous short poems by JonArno Lawson of Toronto, Canada (and illustrated by his compatriot Julie Morstead) reveals first love’s uncertainties, frustrations and joys. Whether describing two people meeting or the misunderstandings and revealations that follow, these poems and the evocative illustrations that accompany them give readers every reason to think… and think again.
Four such interesting poems are:
The Three MEs The first me is the me you know The second you’ll meet rarely, The third me – uh oh, there he goes Him you’ll never see
Think Again Eventually a thought will come But no one can say when If you think thinking’s easy, Think again
Time The past cannot be paid for And the future cannot be bought You’ve got the present moment and That’s really all you’ve got
Time Time comes quick and raw, it can’t be Slowed or refined It moves so fast because It’s leaving everything behind
