a brown-eyed girl
by Charlie Morgan
i created you in my mind, you me;
it was the same sky, more blue
your alien charms, not of the town;
a little brown-eyed girl, a dimple
per cheek; loveliness wrapped in
an uncertain kiss, snatched but also given,
infatuation sneaked-in, our future blinking
on/off; so far away.
ignorantly, but blessed, i married her;
and like Frost 'that has made all the difference';
she is my life.

Awww, how charming, Charlie! Truly. The title caught me b/c I have dark brown eyes *giggles* and I loved the little gem you created here!

This poem is beautiful. The last stanza says it all!

I had to read this one even though I had logged off from my latest posting - just glanced over and saw your name (as usual - in the top ten). That last stanza captures it for me and my brown-eyed girl. Thanks for this delight, Chaz. It makes me want to hug you.

Ya know Charlie, one thing I have missed about this site is reading the great writers here. I realized a long time ago your writing intrigues me like Cormac MacCarthy's. I enjoy going back and re-reading your words as they cause such introspection. “Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting.”
