The Unexpected

The Unexpected

Sometimes my love for you
crashes in
like an unexpected guest
a surprise.

In moments of mundane
chores or times
of quiet solitude
there it is.

Perhaps a song
you courted me with
a moment of laughter
in an otherwise
blue, or gray,
day.

Sometime when you
are most vulnerable
I remember that
young, young man
who opened his heart to me
and still does.


Unexpected moments
that can find
and heal
my
expectant heart.

Please go here to find other artists that are taking part in posting about The Unexpected this weekend.

  3. Aw, that's so lovely. Gosh I can completely put Robert into that poem as I read it to myself. Very personal and engaging. It's an ideal Valentines. Thank you so much Mary-Anne. That makes me want to write another poem. I think I might take up the Sunday Whirl this Sunday. X

  5. Beautiful, open minded, real. Those little moments are there. Often forgotten because the day goes very quick and I often am to busy to recognize. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Thank you all for your appreciation and encouragement - maybe my idea of a book of poetry isn't just a pipe dream.
