Unsolicited Opportunity

by James Zealy

Opportunity projects
A screen of casual
Acquaintances

One casts a harmonic note
That feels tuned for my ear
Pleasant, warm, exciting

Where words and phrases
Translate to melodious verse
Conversations to instant symmetry

I find a consistent rhythm
With each movement
of our ongoing folk lore

An electrifying moment
Discovers questions
That become transparent

Is this the paired soul
That can
Protect my heart
Protect my soul
Pursue my care
Make me laugh
Make me cry
Take my irrational moments?

A thinly veiled caricature
Forms an image I feel
At exactly the right moment

Precisely with a whisper
That unlocks my subconscious
With a sense of comfort.

Looking does not reveal
Searching gathers no results
Inquiring discovers no answers

At the moment I least expect
When there is no barrier
To my wandering mind

Is when a connected
Happenstance becomes
What I missed

it brings me to my fear of laboring to learn a language just at the moment everyone decides to stop talking
