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

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 lives and writes in Houston, and continues to believe in the possibility of finding a love-partner, even though it is proving more difficult, and perhaps more dangerous, than climbing Mount Everest. She loves her life of music, friends, books, cats and gardening and would love to share it, and herself, with a lovely man who also believes that the unexamined life is not worth living.
