Keeps sending wrong signals

A Triquain
A non-rhyming seven-line poem with a
syllable count of: 3 - 6 - 9 - 12 - 9 - 6 – 3

Young lady
Keeps sending wrong signals
Hiding her face but still sports a smile
Confusion reigns not knowing exactly what is
Lazy ocean weakens a man’s heart
Positively unsure
Bids to know

Redemption
Reappraisal  needed
Petrified suitor hangs on hopes
Strength of purpose wholly dependent on good sense
Young hearts opening up
Healthy thoughts!

  1. Signals can sure be tough to wade through, especially when sent more than a few

  2. How a smile can send them into wrong ways... (or right) usually it gets absolutely right at the end anyway.

  8. Hank,

    Life seems to have just got so much more complicated and harder, by the sending of an innocent smile etc!!! Every signal is now dissected and debated...Smiles can be dangerous, so it seems:) :)
