The April Blizzard

The April Blizzard

April Storm 2018.jpg


When a late snowstorm arrived in April, you flew in too

Not like a whirling blizzard

Ah, no.

Still handsome and warmer than the snow filled streets

Bright like a Californian

Smiles and laughs and my heart thawed yet again.


We had dinner at a restaurant that I favor.

A pretty young woman sat us by the window.

We re-engaged in friendly banter.


Next to the cold and snow outside,

After years of telephone conversations

Two beings suddenly across the table from one another

Eating a meal together while

Years have passed; separation lifted

Time ceased inside us.


At the end of the meal,

The pretty young woman, who served us,

Appreciated our togetherness.

Her innocent suggestion

To return for date night

Hangs in the air like frosty breath.


Your head shifts and you looked down


And there it was…

For in reality, to the contrary,

There is no us.

While her sentiment confirmed,

We looked like a couple.


Looking at her sweet, fresh face

And not wanting to dispel her hope ~

Pleasure is so fleeting.

A polite smile curved on my lips.


Joking together again outside, walking arm in arm

To avoid slipping in the snow, laughing.

Quietly inside I recognized that

Moment a ripple in the continuum appeared,

Which dictated no pretense or illusion between us.

Ah, no.



Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a meal with friends to share love wherever you may be.
