Ahava is Two Today


Before she was born

all of us in our orange living room

trying to talk about

other things  what would she be like

seeing how life begins

two years later watching her last weekend

she took off her diaper

in the middle of the night threw it from the playpen

laughed a real true laugh


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.
