March 27, 2017, Prescott-
What is in my heart, of late,
is a set of intense feelings.
It is being intrigued by, interested in,
someone who was immensely kind
and loving, the week before last.
It isn’t a return to the temporary insanity
of four years ago.
It is a recognition that there is a friendship,
added to all the other wonderful friendships,
that I have in this world.
It isn’t a matter of my ego, gone haywire.
I know that, as life has presented me
with those to whom I have been attracted,
and who were not the least bit attracted to me,
so, too, has been the converse.
It is a joyful thing,
this reaching out,
to new places, new friends,
It isn’t a matter of discarding the gold.
