After They Met

They met.

It doesn't matter how.

They met and know each other now.

He for the first time;

She as one of many.

He thought it was the right time.

She: "He's common as most any.."

He thrust his heart out;

wearing it on his sleeve.

She smiled a small pout,

quite willing to receive.

Their romance as such,

was short and passion free.

He quite willing to give much;

she thinking when to flee.

The two had mingled enough;

their futures locked in stone.

She would soon be mother;

He a winning drone.

And so they hopped their separate ways,

their encounter brief but sweet;

he to many other lays,

she to raise more lucky feet.

Nature provided a home....

In this case, home was where the hart are.

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

Well now...clever little ditty this is... and of course can be interpreted on more than one level, of course. I shall digress for a moment..it used to /still does drive me crazy when someone asked me to interpret the poem/writings of another. Honestly, the creator of it/ or of prose is really the only one who knows the intent of their words.

That being said, the little bunnies here sound like they may be quite prolific albeit lacking passion just as some of their human counterparts.

Angels are on the way to you this afternoon ps

Voted up++++ and shared ps

pstraubie48 - Thanks both for commenting and for scoring. Both matter greatly to me. The writing was fun. It started out to be about a rejected suitor, but transformed itself into something quite different.

Isn't it fun when inspiration gets in the way and you yourself are entertained in the process?!

Ah, yes, and so the story goes. It makes me smile to find nature in every conceivable location now. I am truly in my element.

aviannovice - Ah, but it IS spring, the season when nature should be in "every conceivable location".

My hummingbird feeder is filled and ready. The honeysuckle those flappers like so much are in blossom. I'm waiting for the barn swallows to swoop around me excitedly again this year announcing "We're here! We're here!"

It's many folks favorite season, when life is full again.
