Reunion – Carolyn Kizer

For more than thirty years we hadn’t met.

I remembered the bright query on your face,

That single-minded look, intense and stern,

Yet most important -how could I forget?-

Was what you taught me inadvertently (tutored by books and parents, even more By my awe at what was yet to learn):

The finest intellect can be a bore.

At this, perhaps our final interview,

Still luminous with your passion to instruct,

You speak to that recalcitrant pupil who Inhaled the chalk dust of your rhetoric.

I nod, I sip my wine,

I praise your view,

Grateful, my dear, that I escaped from you.

By Peace Truth

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
