Just we two,

Suspended in our small world,

One hot afternoon.


(c) Jackie Le Poidevin

For Carpe Diem: companionship.

I was thinking when I wrote this of the second stanza of John Donne’s The Good-Morrow:

And now good-morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear;
For love, all love of other sights controls,
And makes one little room an everywhere.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone,
Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown,
Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one.
