her porcelain face

she waits for me

the speck just outside

my periphery

a familiar back

gliding into

the alley

she is my


my dreaming

unborn twin

her face porcelain

mine suffused with pink

her long dark

waterfall hair

my confusion of short

blonde curls

she is silence

slipping through the


I am noise

exploding on the dry leaves

If I lose pace

by lack of purpose

her movements

slow to clock ticks

as she waits for me

    WOW WOW WOW–and you used one of my fave words, “chimera”.

      I always liked the word too, though I never was sure of the pronunciation.

        I usually have to look it up again and again, so we’ve found yet another kindred similarity.

          That’s what makes the cyberverse such an interesting place! You never know who you might meet and share things in common with!

            I KNOW! Prior to entering the Internet world, I felt so isolated and alien (due mostly to being SO different, apparently, from my family)–didn’t find a niche anywhere to fit in; and I’ve gained so much, blossomed, meeting people who are “just as different”. Sending you a HUG.


I love dialogue. Do you?
