160 - backseat sparking

under a sea of stars
he vaulted the door
landing in her backseat
leaving her date
speechless &

a few years later
they had me.

this crazy kinda love,
i get it honest.

What can you say in 160 characters? (spaces included) Go see Monkey Man.

Had a couple people asking about Cole's hair, after seeing Logan's double mohawk yesterday. Cole went for the single...

Beautiful wife and family - the tradition continues!!

kkrige said...

Oh Brian I can see why you are so in love! Your wife is beautiful. I am not exclusively talking about her looks either. The glow of her face holds such a light looking spirit. She exudes happiness and love. Your little men are handsome devils too. It sounds like the devilish spirits come down the family tree honestly too! Love your tale of YOU & your beginnings.

Nice. And very cool kids with the mohawks.

Prayer Girl said...

I have to agree - she is a beauty and her soul shines forth. Love the little one too.

Thank God I can just appreciate your writing and don't have to deal with feeling jealous, competitive. I am grateful. Love your writing - plain and simple.

So much in so few words, as always, a wonderfully wondrous 160! And Cole's single is equally brilliant :D

There is nothing sweeter than that crazy kind of love :)

Yes, I think we're all glad our parents did some backseat sparking. LOL

Been there, done that too.

Love the hawk.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Compare this to your profile picture.

Priceless!

Birdie said...

I love the picture Brian :-) Cute they are, both!! :-) And the poem. In exactly this haircut my husband came once from a bathroom asking me if I still did like the american natives. A asked him 'where is your horse big chief'? just a funny memory your picture brought to me :-)(he didn't keep the haircut thought...)

Gillian said...

Rock on boyz!!! Lookin' kewl

Valerie said...

It seems all is revealed, and now we know what inspires you to write so well.

slommler said...

'Tis dangerous to vault into the backseat. Could cause some serious damage. Ha!
And your wife is absolutely gorgeous! And you son is looking so cool with his shades and haircut.
Great pic

As I tell people- it's just hair, and it does grow back if you want it to..

TechnoBabe said...

Great picture, Brian. The hair cut is cool to the max, and the glow on your wife's face says alot. Running out the door and jumping in a car for a date was the beginning of another generation and then another. Happy Days.

LadyFi said...

Eternally Distracted said...

Beautiful all around!

(But why was I picturing John Travolta at the drive-in?)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Finally! A picture of your beautiful wife! She's a knock out and easy to see why you are so madly in love with her.

Cheers to you and your happy family!

PurestGreen said...

It's hard to paint a picture with just 160 characters - well done. I am also loving the hairstyles. Will you be next? Could it be...the tri-hawk?

Madame DeFarge said...

Great hairdo. And lovely poem about the joy of the back seat. Not that I ever did any such thing of course.

Alice Audrey said...

What a wonderfully romantic 160.

thinkingtoohard13 said...

I found someone else who gets it honest, too. Woot! Love this :-)

Kulio said...

vaulted into the backseat! nice, what a picture in so few words :-)

Mona said...

The action is so swift! I tell you your poetry reminds me of staccato Donne!

Cool Picture. The 'mom' is beautiful!

Menina said...

necking in the back seat...hehehe [blush blush] great summer memories for a lot of us...

Now about the haircuts...Are you going for the triple? Cute pics. The miller family is adorable!

Dianne said...

My guys are going for the long hair, cheap on the budget, but I do have clippers too!
Thanks for visiting,
have a good week.

secret agent woman said...

Awww.

drybottomgirl said...

How cool is that! Your beautiful wife and sweet son. That picture made me smile. The line that spoke to me most was "I get it honest"...that's the best way. No storms up north but steady gloom and off and on rain, but I love being in the cabin curled with a blanket and reading by the soft line, glad you made it through your storm, I love those too until they get severe...then it's a different story.....

ds said...

Cole is one wicked-cool kid, who clearly has two wicked-cool parents. Nice poem, too.

Gattina said...

That's funny, my son had his hair the same way, but that was 30 years ago, lol !

Kay said...

too cool for school... and 160 words that couldn't be more real :)

Zuzana said...

What a great picture! (And post.;)) Your wife is stunning natural beauty and your boy so cute in his new do.;))
Have a great Monday,
xoxo

Alice Audrey said...

Jingle said...

Magical tale for your parents,
What beautiful gift to your Dad...

Cole looks very calm and cool,
He is going to shine like a star in the future, I can tell from his look.

Happy Thursday!

Mighty M said...

So there are 3 mohawks in the family now? :)

You have a lovely family!

jake said...

My parents would have never let me get a mohawk... then again, they never seemed to have any passion like that either. I'd probably be annoyed by it if they did though... Good one, sir!

Ana Goncalves said...

Amazing powerful words! Your story is wonderful in the truthfulness of it's profound reality. Well done. You said it all under the word count.
