"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss


Something in me tingled
When I saw her up on screen
So unexpected
I must have been holding
      my breath
Then,
All of a sudden,
There she was

 

I got chills -
She was the only one,
Out of everyone
To give me them

 

Simple as can be
Her alone
Smiling against the bright
      background of sky
And green trees

 

[I can't say
I've ever felt that before
Surprising
Out-of-the-blue
I wasn't by myself in the theater -
Mixed with the crowd, in fact,
But seated just on the edge

 

Maybe that was a dangerous place
      to be sitting
The overflow of indistinguishable
      emotions
Almost pushed me over]

 

It took me a while to return to
      normal
[But what if that was normal?
Was that what was meant to be,
Meant to happen?
If Norma wills it]
The slides kept shifting,
Pictures changing

 

Perhaps it didn't happen
After all
