Four things come not back: the spoken word; the sped arrow; time past; the neglected opportunity. Omar Ibn Al-Halif, Aphorism ___________________
On a beautiful Fall day- I went for a café, pushing open the shop door, I bumped into a man, pardon me, I said shyly (for he was quite handsome). On my table I placed my café, my journal and pen, ready to write a poem or two or perhaps an observation. Then the "handsome" man is asking, may I join you? Until that moment, I had not considered him relevant. Inside, I was quivering with possibilities! This turn of events could be a worthwhile opportunity, if I let things progress in a timely manner. Each word he said spoke to my ravished heart- Star bright eyes, rosy cheeks, ruby lips, stepping stone words. Such a smooth talker that I was soon quite smitten. Everything about him was desirable and pleasant to me, so reaching into that adventurous side of my personality, I engaged in this mating dance- Nothing can be thrown away, especially when it comes to love. Do you believe in windows of opportunity? I do. And, in time we were talking head to head quietly, two people like-minded meshing into one entity, touching hands. In life sometimes love can burn for just a moment, and be taken by the wind in the next- You must never, ever neglect a serendipity opportunity. _____________________________ October 22, 2016 Quote with Acrostic For the contest, Opportunities sponsor, Nayda Ivette Negron First Place

Dear Broken Wings, starting the first day on this site your words did sing. I saw no broken wing. The words, 'Angel did ring' let them always sing. Peace and Many Blessings to You.
