Linda Pastan Quotes

Im only leaving you
for a handful of days,
but it feels as though
Ill be gone forever—-
the way the door closes
behind me with such solidity,
the way my suitcase
carries everything
Id need for an eternity
of traveling light.
Ive left my hotel number
on your desk, instructions
about the dog and heating dinner. But
like the weather front
they warn is on its way
with its switchblades
of wind and ice,
our lives have minds
of their own.
— Linda Pastan —

To be the other woman
is to be a season
that is always about to end,
when the air is flowered
with jasmine and peach,
and the weather day after day
is flawless,
and the forecast
is hurricane.

— Linda Pastan

Poetry is not a code to be broken but a way of seeing with the eyes shut.

— Linda Pastan

Just looking at them I grow greedy, as if they were freshly baked loaves waiting on their shelves to be broken open
that one and that
and I make my choice in a mood of exalted luck, browsing among them like a cow in sweetest pasture. For life is continuous as long as they wait to be read
these inked paths opening into the future, page after page, every book its own receding horizon. And I hold them, one in each hand, a curious ballast weighing me here to earth.

— Linda Pastan

Grief is a circular staircase.

— Linda Pastan
