Celebrate being single,
Explore chances to mingle…
In real time, face to face,
A fun event, a favorite place…
With no outcomes in mind,
Joy in the journey you’ll find.
Be prudent, my friend. What settles in your mind
Could make wines of life bitter and wasted.
Cradle one’s choices so later you’ll find,
With grace and love, sweet joy
You have tasted.
You fit seamlessly;
My horizons expanding
See no end to us.
I participated in Poetry Month via Here and Now on NPR during April 2019. It was fun reading all the entries and realizing others had read mine. Submissions had to fit into the original 140-limit.
