The Unexpected

by Tameko L. Barnette

Unexpected.  Like
a tornado touching
ground without a
warning to those in
its path.

Unexpected.  Like
two feet of snow
during the month of
July when everyone
decided to wear

Unexpected.  Like
a downpour of rain
in the park, while
people are having
a picnic.

Unexpected.  Like
the tears of joy one
can feel when a
familiar song is
played on the radio.

Unexpected.  Like
the opening of one's
heart to another when
all that was anticipated
was friendship and

Unexpected.  Like
the love I have for
you.  I couldn't have
forseen what was
waiting for us on
that day when we
proclaimed our love
for one another.
