Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

43 requests from Facebook Friends

I’m still not sure what a facebook friend is

though I have some

posting pictures of vegetation The Washington Post

Thanksgiving tables laden with food  or grand children

today 43 Facebook Friends asked for money for Good Causes

I think about Giving and what I would like to Give

my Facebook friends besides small amounts of money

what we need from one another now  funny how

simple answers  are, how uncomplicated every one of us

is in the end even those people who are impossible

who could be songs even novels funny how what we all need

to give one another a good meal and love and hope

and one good story.

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.


  1. Your poem today speaks to my condition. (old Quaker phrase)
    Thank you so much. How to deal with Giving Tuesday when everyone in your life works for a worthy cause? One big, many small….Oy.
