    Reunion

    When bonds were freshly made
    Before the internet
    Another lover got between
    The two as one, no longer seen
    As one with much regret.

    On Facebook after decades
    Much older than before
    She asked if she could be his friend--
    Just one and one? Not two! Pretend?
    They’re not friends anymore.

    Centuries have faded.
    The sand blows swiftly by.
    They laugh at how they acted then.
    Their dreaming seemed so futile when
    They made each other cry.

    Oh Joyous Reunion !


    Oh joyous reunion ! Re-united once more !
    (Tremulous emphatic hugs / kisses / tears pour forth)
    ... My eternal companion greets me at the veil
    Sorry to tarry, dear, I'd hoped to endure well...

    Was it only a moment that we've been apart ?

    Perhaps from your perspective, for me - not so much
    You passed in your prime: Oh ! How I've longed for your touch !

    But here we are together, and now we can start -

    To join all our dear ones, Temple worthy all
    Brought to the fold by the Shepherd, whom He did call
    Sealed for time and all eternity, His fulness received
    Fulfilling our Father's plan, pre-mortally conceived

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Summer (14.6.17.)

    The trees are wearing their best leafy green,
    Flowers blooming in the heat of summer,
    People drinking beers, recall places seen.
    Briefly, all marching to their own drummer -
    So, go ahead now, and fulfill your dream,
    Or lie back and have a bowl of ice cream -
    Too soon, it’s all over – what a bummer!

    SUMMER: An Acrostic

    Summer sszzzles
    Under a bright yellow balloon
    Malevolent to the snowflakes who risk
    Melodrama as they bake; blank stars in their eyes
    Everyone down to the seashore! - watch the icebe-
    Rgs go by !
