(Just a goofy little poem here, playing with some rhyme schemes)

Fate Intercedes

In dark of night, such grand delight
Despite the stormy weather
Safe inside, they’d shared a ride
In the cab together

His name was Bill, her name was Jill
And while the cool rain fell
In warm back seat of taxi neat
They sat and talked a spell

She was a writer, he a firefighter
They both were twenty eight
She liked Poe, He the Alamo
And both were running late

He liked the sea and so did she
They both liked Robert Frost
She met his eyes, as blue as skies
And laughed, I think we’re lost

“Tenth and Abbey,” she told the cabby
“Hey I’m going there too!”
“To a dinner party with Beth and Marty?”
He laughed, “This can’t be true!”

“You’re my blind date. We both are late
And we’ve already met”
“While they are waiting, anticipating
Their plans we’ve now upset”

They laughed of fate and being late
They laughed at best of plans
Then at the party of Beth and Marty
They entered holding hands




 To love means never to be afraid of the windstorms of life: should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

hoot-girl this is NOT goofy...
its absolutely CHARMING!!!
the rhyme and flow are PERFECT...and the emotions and imagery are a delight to read.
very cool poem hoot!!!you seem to be enjoying your self poeticly these days...and we are enjoying  too  
take care,jm

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...

Lovely, Ruth!

     This is very good.  You won't believe this, but I just had a blind date myself, and  everything turned out lovely, too.  We have been talking on the phone ever since, and things are going really well.  Thank you for brightening up my day with this one!

and I am all the better for it~

Hay...

I was just thinking... is this "interceding" stuff hard to come by, or can I pick one up on the way home from 7/11..? But really, I think I'll just tip-toe out of here before I get in any deeper.
