Ahava is Staying for a Week

Ahava  with us for a week.

Her parents went to Mexico so we

bought Peppa Pig sheets goldfish

Annie’s Organic Mac and Cheese.

We’ve  listened to Frozen

one thousand times. Today

is just Day Two.  Hard to believe

we did this once:  had a child,

who is 33.   Life

ordinary as life

yet when she says I dreamt

I was Rapunzel and my hair went down

the fire escape and then she sings

doesn’t matter what she sings

usually Down By The Bay life

complicated and large

life becomes just Ahava

and her song.


Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
