Poem in Response

After reading “By Chance” (translated: por un acaso), posted by a dear friend and wonderful writer from Portugal, Carla Milho – wherein she shares reasons for changing her nickname, formerly Red Warrior – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

In a land known as Lisbon
Across the sea, set apart
Hails a cute girl named Carla
– a beautiful work of art

Her skin, golden tan
Her eyes, lovely green
Her smile warms my heart
…you know what I mean

Like a school-kid with a crush
Poems of love that never end
Yet, I know she’s spoken for
And extend my hand as friend
