Poem- oh September 14, 2014

My gaze settles

on a dimpled grin

eyes laughing

amid the  crowded din

Your eyes find mine

grow hooded,

and your smile

stretches languidly.

The din disappears

as we spin a web

between us.

Who is spider?

Who is fly?

    I had a very similar experience when I met my 2-1/2 wk old great niece a few years ago. But in this case, I know I am the fly. I fell totally under her spell. 🙂

    Person to person interaction or is it person versus person. Reading you fascinating poem, perhaps the jury would still deliberate. Thank you for the taste of our sometimes quirky humanity.
