In the Meadow

Two travelers with different destinations, we met before our paths diverged, and in that span between our first encounter and subsequent farewell, we read in one another’s eyes a wanderlust that took us off our track. We found ourselves in a meadow of grass seemingly never trodden on before, where we became as two breezy joyous children, frolicking dizzily around the wildflowers that became our world. Racing each other up a knoll, we finally and breathlessly tumbled into one another’s arms, growing silent as we gazed into each other’s eyes beneath a sky of blue. Rapture soon discovered us that glorious day in the meadow. . . Later, a nearby river enticed us with its rushing sound, so we followed it. Coming to its end, we saw the sky grow black and tried to find our way back to our first spot of discovery and enchantment. Instead we wound up back on the common path where we’d first met, parting ways as a sudden rain’s downpour veiled my view of your departure. Every now and then I stop and wonder if you ever came across a place again that could compare to the rapture of our time in the meadow.

    WOW!!! I shouldn't be surprised that you are so darned good at writing prose, but this is beautiful. That first sentence is absolutely golden!

    Such a nice reminicence of youthful love and joy. It's as if your words themselves are frolicking in the meadow. :)

    Ah, some prose from you for a change. This prose poetry read to me like snap-shots from a dream -- cool effect. Thank you kindly for the fav poems "contest" invite, even though I haven't been entering contests for quite some time. Hey, if you at least enjoy my more humorous and bawdy 'shorties', that's good enough for me, without entering. I am being stubborn about the contests.

    Hey Andrea. Yep, I lived in Kentucky for about eleven years starting when I was about seventeen. It has a special place in my heart as well, although I have yet to encounter any blue grass there.. Great write, I love the Robert Frost-y hints at the beginning..was that intentional? Have a lovely Sunday.
