A poem I wrote in a cafe while at University of Minnesota.
                                                              The Barrier...Time

      At last, the meeting now adjourned

      A shimmer in a glancing eye

      The prickly flame inside me churned
      But the barrier... time, between us lies.

      A chance encounter with radiant sun
      A hopeful and courageous try

      To be so lucky... A distant one

      But the barrier... time between us lies.

      Now conversation bright and brisk
      With thoughts welding in our minds
      We chanced the universal risk
      And the barrier...time between us lies.

      A honeyed merging in twilight

      implanting visions with easy grace

      Of futures lit in candle light

      And the barrier... time between us lies.
