I Read Your Words


I read your words.
They fill my heart.
Though we live
thousands of miles apart,
your soul touches mine,
our thoughts share a dance,
and, should we ever meet by chance,
we already know
each other's hearts,
though we live
thousands of miles apart.

Am sick this week, kids, so penned just a simple response to Kim's prompt at Verse First: We are Interconnected. Nowhere have I encountered interconnection as amazingly as in the online poetry community, which has given my heart wings, and my poems a place to live. Thank you to each one of you. It still blows me away that someone in another part of the world is taking the time to visit my site and leave a comment. It makes me smile and just never gets old.
