Gardening Tip

Our eyes locked across the cocktail lounge
First sparks
I held her gaze, daring her resistance

We crossed the room and talked
Discovered things in common,
mostly magnetic physical attraction
Naked flames

We met for coffee
Fire was fed
Went to her place
Conflagration

She came to my place
Allergic to my cats
Well, love me, love my cats
Flames lacked oxygen

A rendezvous postponed
A headache
Love died as fast as it had started
Cold ashes all that’s left

Good for my rose garden

Susan P. Blevins was born in England, and escaped at age twenty on her life quest, moving first to Italy for 26 years, and then to the USA, where she now lives. The older she gets, the more passionately involved she becomes in the world, and the more she wants to make a personal contribution. She believes that we can all make a difference, one hug, and one smile at a time.
