Rainbows From the Heart
About the Book
This is a ten-year collection of poems (1999-2009), thirty-four in all, with each being preceded by a preamble. It is a poetic story about a man and a woman who found love late in life, when neither was looking for a lasting relationship, because both had essentially given up finding that "someone special" with whom to share their intimate dreams and hopes. They both had ongoing relationships which had escaped rainbows from the heart, and neither of them were as happy as they wanted and needed to be.
It all began so innocently, resulting from perhaps serendipity or possibly even divine preordination. It was an encounter in a work environment by two graduate professors who, until then, were complete strangers. It was like a film or movie about when a man meets a woman and they live happily ever after, because when their eyes met that day something happened which is inexplicable.
Just ten days later, they attended a faculty meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, and their lives changed completely and gloriously. As they sat in the Atlanta Airport, waiting for the their respective flights, taking them to different places, he told her, "I know you might think this is crazy, but I think I love you." She merely smiled and said, "I knew what you were going to say, because I feel that way, too." So, the journey began, and now ten years later and their eventual marriage, they have a relationship of fairy tale proportions.
