A Face From The Past



Someone from another life 
that feels like it might not 
really have happened to me at all. 

The face was far from home 
and the chances, odds on us 
passing like this, like two ships 
in the night, were a billion to one.

  1. love when life does this.....I've had a couple of these moments......and it's comforting....the words of explorer Ernest Shackleton come to mind, "The order I witnessed was too perfect to be an offshoot of chance, and I came to realize it was a cosmos, not a chaos, and that a Benificent Intelligence pervaded the whole, went to the heart of man's despair, and found it groundless."

    1. That would explain it. Or, as Gandalf said 'if chance it be...'

      Thanks Kim.
