Love After Love The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.


-Derek Walcott

    The words of the poet are so true; as life turns like the earth, every day. The water inviting, crystal too, with animals of beauty and tranquility they must be angles in disguise.

    I will visit this Rabbit Hole again some day….

    This is so profound…

    Falling back in love with ones-self and it feels wonderful.
