ON THE SPOT POETRY by (me!) sandra, ttgp

ORIGINAL POST 11/06/2007: coffee beans n' bistro/nov 5th

i saw this man passing by
'thousand stories inside green eyes
his smile and accent undisguised
his nature good, his lessons wise
i listened. looked. smiled goodbye
anew from our exchange.

This is beautiful Sandra,

A moment of connection,
The sweet fragrance of renewal,

Which comes first? The chicken or the egg ;)

Lots of love to you my friend,

These words shimmer off the page, M

Who says everyone should have their fifteen minutes? Recognition can be given at a moments glance ... even when passing a stranger.

hahhah your dad must be awesome. I love that, Sandra! So funny. I'll have to use that...

And thanks for checking my spontaneous blogs! I really enjoyed them. I am guessing you've been very busy with classes!

Did you ever get my postcard? I'm not sure if I ever sent them, or if they ended up in a pile in my room and I just assumed... hmm... trying to go through my junk :)

Much love and so much joy for you and your wonderful adventures!

jr/t: well said! eye-contact, even fleeing; a very powerful thing

bh: i did luck out in the parent's department.. and as a parent myself now, appreciate them more everyday

LOVED reading your recent posts. -priceless wedding photo too ")

and.. no. :( no postcard..

i continue to ask. -have a sign on my mailbox

love notes * poetry * postcards * lucrative contracts

see an image in my mind on occasion. two cartoon panels:

linus, alone in the patch, waiting for the great pumpkin.
sandra, alone near the mailbox, waiting...

still waiting...

with love (and hope!) ~s.

hahah well, I will have to buy some new stamps once I get money in bank account again :) and then I will send you another and hope to find the other real soon!! Letters are lovely and can brighten a day easily, can't they? Bills? You can burn those, but give me my letters! :) haha

Sending you love - without a stamp,
