My Poem “First Contact”

The moment of first contact
is very important...
the moment of first contact
is when everything is still new...
the moment of every first contact
is always different...
the moment of first contact
can be when the first links of a chain
are forged together with something
stronger than glue...
the moment of first contact
can be fraught with both mystery
and sometimes confusion
until all the waves and the creases
of uncertainty have been smoothed out...
the moment of first contact
is when people first start
finding out who someone else is -
and sometimes first contact
can also turn out to be last contact...
the moment of first contact
is a lesson for all the moments to follow...
the moment of first contact
can feel like forever,
or it can be forgettable
depending upon what interests
and intentions are on a person's mind...
the moment that you first meet someone
you have never met before
you have no idea, nor control,
of how things will go,
nor how things will turn out -
but what you can do is hope
for the best that whatever first contact
you have will be memorable,
in a good way, and will open the door
for more contact in the future.
