In a Few Days, South Africa

What does it mean
to leave
my yellow coffee cup leave
every story I know
here where I
have lived forever
what does it mean
to take a long long flight
to a country I’ve always
wanted to see
because it is a beginning
of life, a place where
hope happened, people apologized
for atrocities when others
could hear them many lives
what does it mean
to come and go?

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.
