Proposal

The Question

Remember when you asked me
the question-THAT question?
I do.

I was child, disguised as woman,
still gathering gold into red wagons.
By the time I turned back
to answer, you had gone.

Your footsteps sparked
through labrynthed streets,
then faded, traveling
places I could no longer follow.

Nice poem, Pris. And a nice, reflective post.

Thanks, Michael,
There was an email on his site so I dropped him a line and was pleased to find a note back from him this morning. He's still a very nice man and told me that I was his first love. That's a nice position to hold in someone's life.

Finding that this man was still around and doing well was a special treat.

Seems that the thought of proposals is universal these days... Peter asked me last night!!!

Neat to see that your old flame is doing well, and I loved the poem.

Hugs, E
