Winter Dance

I thought like the winter you were cold. You always seemed out of my reach, so good looking and you had a certain strut. You were used to boys falling all over you. I said hi and you gave me a dissmissive glance. I continued to look in your direction and cleared my throat.  You looked up again curious to see what I wanted. I became lost in my emotions.

she tilts her head
and flips hair to the side --
our eyes lock

I stood there staring into your big brown eyes, tongue trapped in the back of my throat. I must have looked comical, you started to laugh. Not a cruel laugh it was one of sheer delight, your smile radiated warmth over your entire face. I had never before witnessed such beauty. once my tongue was free I asked you out to the winter dance. You surprised me by saying yes. I guess fortune does favor the bold. I walked away before you could change your mind. Each footstep in the snow marked the beat of my heart.

    Richard congrats on your win. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Might I suggest bring the WHOLE write into the present tense? It will make it even more immediate and involving for the reader and mesh better with the haiku concept. [even though the haiku MOMENT is in the past we reveal it as if we were there in the MOMENT]-4th line from the bottom capital [Once] Light & Love

    Very touching excellent poem written by a very good poet. I saw that you view another poet named Margherita Russo she's only 14 and I know it would mean alot for her to have you read her newest poem if you have the time. Thank you very much.

    Without having read the details of the mix it up contest, I gotta say I enjoyed how he took control of his own fate and put himself out there. If you don't go after something, you'll never get it. Or as I always told my kids "If you don't ask, you don't get." I love this.

    I have heard women appreciate a guy who knows what he wants. My wife says if I wasn't willing to put myself out there we would not have met.

    Instant irony here, I left this page open to check another tab and was presented with this appropriate little gem: There are three types of people in this world - Those who make thing happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened. I may have to change my creedo!
