Tentative~OctPoWriMo Day 2

Shyly reaching for your strong and calloused hand

Seeking your warm gray eyes as a raging sea seeks the sand

Wonderfully hesitant to start this mildly tentative dance

The rhythm of hearts beating as if urging to take the chance

Is there love in this playing?

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. OMGOSH!!!! I thought of doing the same son lol! I have it by another artist and use it as my husband’s ringtone. I just couldn’t figure out how to take “us” out of the song to write the poem. NICELY done!
