Almost two years ago, even before these forums came into existence, I penned a poem for two very special people to help celebrate their first "real world" meeting. Though linked by virtual passion, they were separated by no less than an ocean (the literal kind), and their first face-to-face was long anticipated. They met, realizing a dream and cementing a love. And then they parted. Life doesn't always give us smooth, straight roads and it is only now, nearly two years and many bumps later, that these two people have at last traversed the curves they were thrown.
A few days from now, that ocean will again be crossed. At the end of a very long flight, this time in the opposite direction, two people will again meet and realize their dream.
And, once again, I wish them the very best.
|Cyber Seas |
Nomadic sailors set adrift,
Faceless names in failing ships,
Endless paths through endless seas,
Sailing through infinities.
Two bows brush in darkest night,
Two hands touch in briefest flight,
Two souls meet unwittingly,
Small islands in a cyber sea.
A lantern lit by dual consent,
A ray of light both never meant,
Small beacon few can understand,
In search of welcome distant land.
Two boats joined in single ship
By hearts upon a common trip,
No longer faceless entities,
One island in a cyber sea.
