                                                  with problems
                                                  in conections
                                                  solitude world wide
                                                  the Explorer indoors
                                                  cannot display the webpage
                                                  surprised by a reality
                                                  so many times absurdly denied
                                                  as a river finding out its wetness

    Hi Ruben.. saw your blog comment and answered but just in case u don't go back to my blog.. this contest is about Summer Love and Summer is Steamy ... think of the movie or play "GREASE" with Danny and Sandy and how they met and how they fell in luv.. then write a rhyming poem .. they had deep pure luv .. passion was at the end of the movie but done in good taste.. I did not want to have any problems with erotic kind of entries.. so deep luv ..first luv.. how u felt.. OK? luv.
