When their eyes met


Their eyes met ...
just so, for no reason at all.
Or did it happen
out of an inner call?
A soulís desire perhaps
that approached fulfilling?

If a fraction of a second
is enough to record
the existence of affinity,
they no doubt
experienced it right then.

His gaze made her
lower her head
in sudden shyness,
just enough for him
to realize
there had been a spark
of recognition.
Something that
stirred the blood
to go crazy ...

When she couldnít resist
the magnetic pull
to refocus her gaze
to meet his,
they both stopped breathing
for long enough
to reveal their charming
confusion.

No words were uttered,
but their worlds collided
and they knew
their lives had just shifted
into a new dimension.

They lopsidedly smiled
at each other then,
enjoying their mutual emotion
and they marveled
at an early sunset
intensely reflecting
on each otherís face ...

Yo dear Margherita,

Charming confusion is the best kind of confusion.

This is a nice romantic poem.

I've recently found a love in a distant land and she asks me to write about what it will be like when we first meet. I love how you've described this first glance. Not overly romantic, but true signs of nervousness, just beautiful! BRAVO!!! ENCORE!

Thanks for taking the challenge!

Thank you Temptress, Ida and Honey/Helen. Emotions are beautiful ... we have got laughter and tears to keep in balance and live with intense awareness.

Love,
Margherita
