Jump Cabling

When our cars touched
When you lifted the hood of mine
To see the intimate workings underneath,
When we were bound together
By a pulse of pure energy,
When my car like the princess
In the tale woke with a start,
I thought why not ride the rest of the way together.

Love this poem, something as inane as a car breaking down can bring people together and 'spark' something! ! Most clever! HG: -) xx
there is always that sweet suspense and romance in your poetry. linda love it.
I like the way you think... 'why not? ' =) dan
I think I just felt that jolt of energy myself. Well expressed!
