Last Day

"Goodbye to Work"
The boxes are loaded into the car
The farewell lunch is eaten
The hugs and well wishes dispensed
And thus this chapter ends

As quietly as I arrived, as quietly as I left
Though I hope that the internet via email holds
some of those connections intact
But time and space away, ah the heart is fickle

That's nice and meditative, JS. I think I'd feel the same way if I was leaving a place I'd been at as long as you've been there.

Thank you so much for the fun poetry and good food last night! The company was awesome! I can see why you gals like Alt and hope that time will make her and I friends. See you in a few!

Ah, those fickle hearts: that's what blogs are for...

All your farewell (and travel) poems would make a nice chapbook.

I like "As quietly as I arrived, as quietly as I left..."

Were you and Wonder Woman already together when you arrived?

Peace/out, girl, and Happy Mother's Day to the two crowned mothers.
