my first glimpse of you

in a room full of strangers walking by, greeting each other, talking and laughing together, everything is silenced at my first glimpse of you inside the crowded room looking for me who is waiting for you. i feel so lucky and this is the beginning of a smile.....

What a great moment that is! Your heart jumps up and is in suspense, hovering somewhere over your forhead. Were you looking for them or were they looking for you? The eyes meet. That part can shock you out of your skin, but if you're bold, you do not look away. Just imagining the smile makes me warm. Hopefully then you run and give them a hug, not believing the chance that they are actually there. Or you dissect them with your eyes, and always wonder what they were thinking.

Am I really the first to comment? Lucky I. I guess it's all in the timing.

sirbarrett said...

wow! You posted at exactly 3pm, speaking of timing, and I meant 'the beginning of the smile' not the smile itself, cause that is something quite on it's own. It takes longer to stretch out. You are the queen of moments.

I love the slight smile on the woman's face. It's one of anticipation. Her eyes are expressive and reveal delight.

Just like Mona Lisa, I think she knows something we don't know.

stella said...

the roses are beautiful! they bring out the softness of the moment and capture the essence of your words within the photo.

ahh lovely lorena!

iamnasra said...

The first galnce of her
brings a smile to my heart
As she glances back
The feeling are entwined

Makes you want to see what she sees

beginning of a smile...i like that...it's like the building up of a giddy feeling and how you anticipate the bursting bubbles in your insides. *sigh*

mermaid said...

Is that you? Sorry, I don't read other comments till I'm done with mine. I read this as you, looking at you for the first time, I mean, really seeing you. Perhaps you meant a lover, but I like the other meaning as well.
