Poetic Justice

The news reader in a light pink suit

Bearing the whole world's weight

Smiling professionally


The housewife who just

Won the lottery, grabbing her kids,

Having a ball


The young tennis player

Winning her first tournament

Fighting back tears


The beauty queen

Face framed in flowers

Waving to the crowd


The ballet dancer

Striving for perfection

And getting so close


And me -

in my dull job,

single, no kids,

used to losing,

lacking grace,

far from perfect -


But by a turn of poetic justice

I met you

When all is said and done you did end up a winner after all. Cleverly done, interesting all through and the ending was right there in my face...BAM! Loved it!

A newsreader in a pink suit? That must be an interesting sight. Do your game show hosts wear sober jackets and sensible shoes? German TV must make for delightful viewing. I like this one very much, Heike, the way the last two lines bring a smile to the face of the reader, after the melancholy of the preceding lines. I hope whoever "you" is continues to brighten your days.

like the way it picks up steam into the final lines.  So easy to relate to.

I have dealt with many highs and lows in my life. The wonderful feeling of achievement on passing exams etc....(not many lol)


To me...the gift of poetry is one over and above what the world can give,

We are not speaking about  academic things or physical things like having kids..............


to write so others will read your words and in the reading see themselves with their dreams, their failings, their insecurities..........................

there lies a true gift...............

and one bestowed on you in unfair measure  ;-) lol


never lose sight of the truth Heiki


Ali your fan x

BRRAVO dear,

Poets view surpasses sight.

This is a great piece… to compare the meeting of someone to all of those things… they must be very special… lucky you…

P.S: I may be rambling again, but I know that feeling of utter despair when you see famous faces, people doing heroic deeds actually worth mentioning. But its when I'm saddest do I realise that every human on this earth who gets up in the morning amidst all pain, hurt and sense of loss and decides to face the day is a hero. I salute everyone.
You just do it beautifully.You know, sailing on. Heh.

Teaches me not to open my mouth before checking whether you posted new stuff or not eh.
And you call me free spirited. I believe not everyone has to have the usual template in life, marriage, kids and the works.
Like sensual sorceress said already, you're no loser. I'm already richer, wiser and more sensitive to ones around me, but not because you told me to. But you choose to do that yourself.
