Your Pompeii columns reminded me
Of a recent vacation I took to Paestum
So much so I went to your web-site
To learn more about you
And was swept up by your pelican
Photos which led me down the page
to your list "101 things about me" ...
And - for some reason, intrigued
By a woman I don't know but who
Loves pelicans and Pompeii
I found myself studying the list,
Alternately going, "me too"
And "really? that's interesting ..."
What an odd world we live in now
When through the ether we meet
Someone - in a manner of speaking -
Discover commonalities that link us
Warm our hearts, make us feel
Closer, in many ways, than we've
Felt to real-life acquaintances
In literal, not virtual, years
Then go from there - mull it over
Possibly write about it - mull some
more; maybe book-mark their site
And remain aware of their existence
Maybe not - who knows
It's all part of the world-wide web
And the first siting of columns ...
