Act Of God

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

I'm pretty sure, my girl
that your unconscious
and my unconscious
do want to get together.
And you and I, the hosts,
we cannot help
this mad desire,
as it is all
a matter of
and destiny,
and cosmic influence,
and, in the end
an act of God.

I ask you then
why you or I
when faced
with higher powers
ever would
stand in the way.
So, what,
my girl,
what do you think?

I thin that was probably a very good pick up
I guess we are supposed to add a poem so here goes. You write really well from what I read I can tell Your friend the preacher will always pray for you to write another day Word that say more than we read lines with meanings yes indeed a poem written by you my friend will einstein figure out how they end
Almost as good as Allan's pick up line, but yours is more to the point.10
Wow another deep and very meaningful A ten from me......I have taken to telling you what I have scored as some mongeral keeps marking you down...! ! ! Hugs Jan

A limerick can be rather funny
when the syllables are on the money.
But when none of it fits
it can give you the shits


I stopped right at the scene of tragedy.
She stood, head bowed, long neck, wings drooping,
and motionless until she saw my face.
Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

......Of Gold?

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
