Your Unanticipated Scene

Your Unanticipated Scene


A tightly curled
deep red rose,
young as new
birth will allow,
curves upward, pursed lips
for the right time
to open
to its new day.
He stands
In its presence,
their wedding vows
like fine gravel
through his fingers.

To Ponder

            1.   Fine little dislocations often make life exceedingly rich.

            2.   A fascinating bird call or a skilled pianist heard through
                  an open window can come straight home to us.

            3.   The man, fresh from his last cup of coffee is out of the
                  kitchen and on his way to the garage, sees the new

            4.   He stops, almost startled, peers down caringly, takes
                  slight hold of the stem between thumb and forefinger,
                  bends it gently toward him.

            5.   Muses, the woman in the kitchen he just left . . . 23
                  years . . . passed them by so quickly.

            6.   A rose and an anchor, all this seen and claimed in a
                  matter of moments.

            7.   He walks alive, a smile in his voice.
