Revisiting a Favorite Place

The memories flood through:
Study Buddies whispering across the table.
Unknown authors randomly discovered on shelves.
Poems and essays vibrating new ways of thinking.
The wisdom of Dante and Socrates beckoning
the timelessness of life.

Now decades later
With fresh eyes and little time left
I am back.

Aliveness thrives in this moment.
