” over coffee “

There I sat with my cup in hand, jotting down notes from random thoughts…

I often find myself with a song lyric stuck in my head…

One that suddenly arrives even though, I was not listening to music…

I always find myself writing a poem to get to go away…

I came across an article, one of those boring scientific ones…

The author was explaining in layman’s terms one of Stephen Hawking theory

on Waves and Frequencies…

It seems everything can be traced back to waves

and frequencies except Dark Matter…

So there I was sipping on a cup of coffee…

Trying to write a poem about someone’s favorite song lyric…

As a series of images flowed through my mind…

Someone I know I had never met…

I closed my eyes as her face appeared a thousand different ways.

As I fell in love a thousand times…

I would learn her favorite scent…

I would learn the names of her horses and dogs…

She would share the names of her children…

Were it not for poetry I would have gone…

Yes, stark raving mad…

I believe a few times I did indeed…

Love does that or so I have been told…

All of this over coffee…
