Goodbye before we’ve met.

How fair is that?   I’ll miss not

knowing you, and yet

suspect that further down the bar

a surprise awaits us both.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

    I agree, your poem leaves us with a beautiful longing to know more 🙂


  4. I think that’s the kind of surprise that often waits us… we would like to know don’t we… that’s why we stay till closing time.

    ah…..the people we don’t know who walk by, sit further down the bar, ride up or down an elevator with us…….wondering who they be…


  6. Waltermarks says:

    Indeed, there’s no knowing how many surprises in life have started that very way, some good and some not so much


  7. Such a true statement, Nan. No one know what awaits them and the surprise is in being surprised by that fact. A sweet piece of poetics here!

    So mysterious! I want to know what is next, but I think that your poem is richer for leaving us wondering.
