May 15: Don’t give up on me yet
May 16, 2013 § 1 Comment
The work is endless, there is a mouse gnawing under a hutch three feet away from me, and we have a new pet that refuses to eat. I am tired and the world seems too strange for words. This too will end however, and tomorrow is the coffee shop day when we are free to create some art. As a consolation prize, here is a happy little poem from my more optimistic days:
… putting a hand in your back pocket and finding a $20 bill
that you use to buy fresh strawberries or a brand new sky-colored winter cap –
embelished with white clouds and blue
embelished with magical coulds and the blues.
… going through a pile of eaten chestnuts and finding another one still warm
to share; split into almost equal parts, the friend gets the bigger one
in a world called Easy
in a world called Upside-down where nothing is missing and no one.
