Hindsight.....

I kissed
you
goodbye

I just
didn't
know

That's
what
it was

At the
time

So much said in just 15 words - and how many times is this the case...
Love this, Karen!
(plus I like that I had a sneak preview of it while blogger wasn't cooperating)

I figured out what was wrong finally. I was a bit frustrated earlier while trying to post.

But vacuuming helped dissipate the frustration.
[plus I punched the mailman]

Poor mailman... but *you go girl*

Karen from Mentor said...

he's ok. I apologized and gave him a steak for his eye. He said he was going to have it for lunch.

thanks for stopping in to see the piece.

Fred said...

Lots to reflect upon in so few words, you really made each count. Oh, and it is such a true sentiment too

Poignant poem.

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Fred,
I write a lot of flash fiction, so I'm used to stripping things down to the bare bones.

I appreciate you taking the time to stop in.

@poemblaze -- Hey Matt, you snuck in there while I was talking to Fred. Thanks for the comment. I don't know if you've ever commented here at MY on a piece of mine. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

The nervousness and anxiety of the first date, perhaps. Of course, you might not on a first date, but you would definitely not know it was hello or goodbye, but nothing ventured nothing gained, I say. Made me think and it was such a very tight write! Thanks for linking.

Laurita said...

Wow. That is a powerful punch in the gut. You never cease to amaze with those words of yours.

Cat Connor said...

love this!!

Love that you're back and posting and, well, just love really! :D

John Wiswell said...

Happens to me all the time. That's why you make goodbyes count, or try not to think about them.

Lauren C said...

mm. very good. plus I was listening to a particularly melancholy instrumental song while reading it, which colored it sad and nostalgic... lovely.

I'm so happy to see all these new posts! I missed your words.

Karen from Mentor said...

*happy sigh*

Karen from Mentor said...
