The First Couple by William Cullen

Love is lost somewhere
in a breeze of apple scent
as she holds forth fruit
with trembling hands to her mate
who can name all things but death.

William Cullen, Jr., has had his poems published in a number of journals over the years including Asahi/International Herald Tribune, Boston Literary Magazine, Christian Science Monitor, Farming Magazine, Grey Sparrow Journal, Home Planet News, Mainichi Daily News, Modern Haiku and Plainsong. Bill works at a non-profit in Brooklyn, New York. He's married and has two college-age sons.


  1. So much said in so few words. This is splendid. I shall look for more of William Cullen, Jr. elsewhere.

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Lori.

    I'm grateful.
