sjbike9-001Almost a week ago, two friends and I from high school got together and spent almost six hours reminiscing and updating each other on the days of our lives. The area of San Juan Capistrano was a perfect and easy location to meet. We talked and ate, walked and talked some more, and had a desert of frozen yogurt before we parted ways. Each of us has had very different experiences and to sit and listen to our condensed version of forty some years was truly special.

retracing steps

one at a time

when we were young

not all was fine..

years have caught up

and now we know

so much about life

we have learned and grown..

miles have distanced us

but not in our hearts

regrouping together

gives us a brand new start..

    What a lovely experience. I’ve never gone back to a high school reunion, and haven’t talked with a high school classmate in eons. It’s funny/weird, because I was quite active and involved in those years, but I suppose so many moves helped to cut the ties.

    The poem’s lovely, too! Just the right tone – a little nostalgic, a little appreciative for all the lessons learned.

      I have not been one to go to reunions either, so it was perfect for the three of us. I considered myself a wallflower as they called the quiet and not popular girls. Lol! Thank you for your thoughts on what I wrote…
