No Regret Of My Past


It was raining
I must be there
I have an umbrella
I decided
Not to go out

Opened the fridge
And took out meat
Cut into pieces
Put into the pan
Fried it until turned into brown

The rain cleared up
Prepared a dish so fast
I wanted to forget
Though the time looked at

My phone began to ring
I was surprised
It was not that I thought

It was raining again
I was so happy
You came in wring wet
Though you had an umbrella

I put two glasses
We talked about fried meat and
Your call given by chance
And my cancelled meeting

If you was me
I was not here
You worried about
When I forgot it

I looked out
It was raining
I smiled
You didn’t

But it was a pleasant
Rainy evening
With someone else

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
