A wonderfully talented singer song writer friend of mine David Johnson and I decided to see what would happen if we melded our (we’ll call it unique) styles. Without talking to each other we collaborated on a poem over the internet. I started with the first line, then he the second, and here is the result of about 15 minutes worth of work. Speed poetry.
your breath slipped into the cool night air
surrounding our kiss with a foggy flair
eternity frozen within a single pulse of time
Standing jointly with your palm warming mine
My life’s journey is held within your eyes
On an obscure path filled with joyous cry’s
From this lover’s embrace our hearts entwine
Mine loving yours and yours loving mine
Not bad for two people that are thousands of miles apart.
