The Day We First Met

When I first met you,

It wasn’t the way,

You looked in my eyes,

With true sincerity of heart,

It wasn’t your charming smile,

Nor your chivalry…

The way you treated me,

Like a lady,

It wasn’t your generous spirit,

Or your down to earth, 

And humble demeanor…

That drew me in.

Truly the one thing,

That got me, “hook line and sinker,”

Was the way, 

You could make me laugh,

 Till my eyes peed!

And here we are now,

20 years later, still together.

Book Lover-Kaulayaw

Beautifully packaged,

In bright-colored jackets,

Waiting for me,

Waiting for me.

 

Good books,

Never pressure,

Or push me,

To open their pages.

 

And when I’m ready,

I read as fast and as much,

As I choose!

Gracious books.

 

So selflessly giving,

A story,

At my fingertips,

Awaiting my perusal.

 

Revealing richness, depth,

Mystery, secrets, 

Beauty, love,

And wisdom untold.

 

Nothing withheld,

As my interest,

And curiosity peak,

Becoming fully engaged;

 

Unfazed by daily distractions,

Satiated and satisfied,

Buried deep,

Within the pages.

Independent Cords

As the stars hung softly,

In the night sky,

You serenaded around me,

Moonlight dancing,

In your eyes.

 

Coaxed,

By a tone of sincerity,

In your wooing,

Heady from your,

Sweet words spinning,

 

My heart-strings took to vibrating,

reverberating strongly,

And of their own ac-cord;

An accompaniment, 

To your soothing vocals.

 

Is my heart really fluttering?

Perhaps, it’s just the wind.
