This Poem Will Be Short


I have a boy on one shoulder,
and a cat is clawing at the other,
both grabbing for the reins
of my attention,
so this poem will be short.

Gratitude List:
1. Lovely snow streaming down
2. Buds on the dogwood tree
3. Weekends
4. How meaning appears in layers–I have been pondering the meaning this morning of a rather surreal poem that I wrote almost twenty years ago, and I think I am finally beginning to understand it.  Of course, I have thought that I understood it several times in the intervening years.
5. Book sale today!

May we walk in Beauty!
