Meetings


P1010314

I love
that little
quiver
of excitement
that slithers
up my spine
as I get ready
to step out
and meet
old friends
family
acquaintances.
Will they have
changed
beyond recognition?
Will our
time apart
have turned them
into strangers?
To be talked at
politely
distantly
our fellow feeling
long forgotten?
Or do they
remain
as they once were,
connected
linked
loved,
engraved
viscerally
in the very
corners
of my heart?

    hmmm…love the writing, but need to add…they are not the ones changing Rush, it’s usually us, the ones who have left…

      I agree Shruti. But sometimes you can be in the same space as someone and still grow apart….
