Two hearts, a whole world apart
Yet beat in syncopated rhythm

Twin like-minds, so rare to find
Amidst all of these differences

Souls in pairs, with love to share
Though never meeting in person

Mirrored feelings, emotions reeling
A global connection in syncopation


  1. Oooo! Nice! I like the rhyme-deal, and your poem does what it says! And I am over-using exclamation points, but this is very good Eric. :o)

  2. smiles. neat when you meet someone with such a similar heart...

  3. Eric. I didn't know you felt that way. *blushes*

  4. .... turn the beat around! I appreciate syncopation in music ... and your poem.

  5. Neva - Coming from you, that's quite a compliment!

    Mary - Now I just need to come up with a name for that rhyming scheme (if there's not one already).

    Brian - Yes it is... I hope everybody meets that person in their lives.

    Monkey Man - You know I can't hide my true feelings. (LOL!)

    Kay - I liked the way you said "mmmm..." - just the kind of response I like to generate.

    Helen - Yes, music flows so much better when there's an inherant balance between the rhythm, melody and harmony.

    Thanks for the kind words, everybody!

  6. Is it odd – but I have been one of these hearts in one of those situations. I believe it can work – though it takes work and trust. Great job!!

  7. This love through the other media... really exists
    Great one! Eric...

  8. Indeed it can and does happen...
    lovely words here:-

  9. Those people are the lucky ones...

  10. ..a global connection in syncopation.... sums it up beautifully :-)

  11. Eric

    It seems the women agree with you here, as I do , it does exist,, truly it must have experienced this as well? for your poem captures the essence nicely.


  12. I love finding kindred spirits a half a planet away- such as from New Zealand...

    Without internet the inspiration here wouldn't be-

  13. And blogging has certainly made this a reality occurring more onften than we think possible.

  14. if this is a new poetic form, you should submit it to Writer's Digest's contest. If you are interested email me if you can't find it on their website. deadline isn't until Feb.


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
