A long pause so far makes up the day, a tofu scramble with red peppers & spinach, mailing labels, the luxury of a second cup. In a little while run a couple miles, count the geese in the field, wash and rinse and wash and fold and make up a spare bed for sister.
I hope I write more in 2009. I feel guilty about it, and about not being able to offer any poems when asked.
Reminder: A lot of people are wonderful.
