Today’s guest poet  —  Conrad Aiken

Chance Meetings

In the mazes of loitering people, the watchful and the furtive,
The shadows of tree-trunks and shadows of leaves,
In the drowse of the sunlight, among the low voices,
I suddenly face you,

Your dark eyes return for a space from her who is with you,
They shine into mine with a sunlit desire,
They say an ‘I love you, what star do you live on?’
They smile and then darken,

And silent, I answer “You too — I have known you, — I love you! –‘
And the shadows of tree-trunks and shadows of leaves
Interlace with low voices and footsteps and sunlight
To divide us forever.

Quote of the day: “We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.”  —  Ursula K. LeGuin

Daily gratitudes:
Tears
The smell of warm asphalt after a light rain
Laughing with my sister
Cranking at work
My vintage earrings
