Reclusively yours

I dilly-dallied with your invite
until I could no longer postpone it.
And then too,
the reclusive me
accepted it most reluctantly.
I was so close
to not meeting you,
yet another stranger,
in that almost-date.
But as they say,
the universe conspired.
All my plans came to naught.
So yes! I met you,
despite misgivings.
But, the first time ever
I saw your face,
and held your gaze,
I walked home, snug and cozy.
Sunshine gnawed away
at my winterly heart.
the spring tides engulf me.
And occasionally, an urge
to blend my name with yours.

Linking with Thin Spiral Notebook : 100 words: Recluse


  1. When I met my husband (married now for 30 years), we were set up on a blind date. I was very reluctant to go, but my college roommate talked me into going on a double date with her and her boyfriend, my husband's then college roommate.

    1. The conspiracy of universe ;)
      And it worked out beautifully in your case.
      I am so glad you could relate.
      Thank you so much.

  2. This was so pretty.


Since every thought is a seed, I am looking forward to a delicious harvest.
