An Unexpected Encounter

by Hellon   Feb 8, 2017


You said you saw me waving
from across the crowded bistro..
--------

I felt your gaze and
as I turned
our eyes locked briefly
before
my glance fell
loosing the moment

but...

your smile danced towards me
and, as you followed it,
panic spilled my drink
as trembling hands
fought for control
but failed.

Suddenly you were by my side
mopping my embarrassment
in your napkin.
I blushed as you said "hi"
and ordered me a fresh juice.

I could smell the sea
on your skin and,
as the ocean reflected
in your eyes...you asked
if you could join me then,
sat down before I could answer

and...

as our smiles collided,
somewhere between
strangers and friends
you asked for my number.

Should I give it to you?
I think I will!

------

Someday I may tell you
I was not waving at you
I was just swatting a fly

but...

not today.

    I liked your poem a lot Hellon. So descriptive and one that made me want to read on to the very end.
    I also loved your clever lines used, 'your smile danced towards me', that was just one of the great lines you used. Well done!

    Hellon,
    I thought I recalled this in an earlier version. Still leaves me smiling at the splendiferous chance that sometimes propels our lives into directions we would not have gone otherwise.

    This is a pretty funny scenario and it reminded me of a programme I watched a couple of years ago which was based on finding out the cause to a crash and it turned out a woman was wafting a wasp away as she was allergic. Anyway, nice to see you writing again.
    Take care, Em
