It was the sudden click in my head, a spark of intuition in my guts. I heard it above the din of school books and chatter one sunny afternoon. It was our first meeting but I felt a deep connection that I have not experienced with anyone. Perhaps it was in the way he phrased his words, so eloquent, with heavy American accent. Maybe it was the tilt of his head, or the way his eyes followed me with hidden mirth. He made me giggly at his jokes and funny comments. He still does, after 36 years.
above the hushed lotus pond,
the moon is half-silver goddess
swaying to fluted wind
