Meeting and Parting
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

In the world of pain and pleasure
The cycle of fall and rise goes on;
Love and harmony are the treasure
The seed of humanity ever grows on.

Tears might be rolling and falling
Down the bleeding cheeks of the weak;
But smiles are the gleams of God
Sure to play on pious lips of the meek.

They felt/Вони відчували (Ukrainian)
by Halyna Myroslava

вони відчували що мають зустрітись колись
ті двоє
у кожного з них
був свій старт
і молитви свої
своя висота вже досягнена
та свої строї
а на квитках своїх мрій і літери й коди були
своєї земної далеко-близької посадки
і швидкість своя і свій напрям страхИ теж свої

Meeting
by Maxwell Bodenheim

A mood whose heart was a flagon of ashes,
Met another mood whose lips were stained
With the odors of sleeping wine-songs.
The second mood kissed the breast of the first
And filled the ashen flagon with his pale purple breath.
Then the two moods died, and he who bore them,
Being an old man, sat down to make others.

We Met Upon Nearby Hill-Tops
by Maxwell Bodenheim

We met upon nearby hill-tops of our lives
And shook the dust from us, revealing flame-laced clothes
And eyeing each other in the same moment.
You curved a longing to the wave of your arm:
A longing for dark rest crossed by unbidden gifts.
And my eyes deepened in answer. . . .
Then we floated down to the valley between us:
The valley ringed with smooth honey-combs of sleep.

Meeting And Passing
by Robert Frost

As I went down the hill along the wall
There was a gate I had leaned at for the view
And had just turned from when I first saw you
As you came up the hill. We met. But all
We did that day was mingle great and small
Footprints in summer dust as if we drew
The figure of our being less than two
But more than one as yet. Your parasol
Pointed the decimal off with one deep thrust.
And all the time we talked you seemed to see

The Eyes of Wonder
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

the
meeting
of cat and
blue butterfly
though not expected was long awaited
green eyes drift to the tip of its own nose
in hushed stillness
and the guest
to blooms
flies

Meeting History
by Raymond A Foss

Expectantly, asking where she was
She was eight, at that point, in that year
my long-dead ancestor
alive again in this child
running in the yard
with the other players
on this tiny stage set
Reflecting history
that was, in our past
a slice of time, our common struggle
