Good Enough Tuesday (Passover, Easter, Spring)

Today, we can begin

to celebrate whatever it is

we celebrate, resurrections,

liberations, eggs and bread and unbread

and all things round, tonight

because it is Tuesday or even Wednesday and because

we know stories, some ancient,

some new, some good enough to repeat

for thousands of years, tonight

if we want to start a new tradition

or think about the one we know the one we don’t know too

tonight we can tell the story of liberation

or exodus or a god or two or even the story

of how a young black woman with a sense of humor

became our leader after all and led us out of evil

once again.

 

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.
