How to Describe This Day (COVID)

Impossible to Describe this Day

to tell you what beauty is what beauty looks like

how it feels sitting on this porch a porch I’ve

tried thousands of times to explain to bring

you here to explain what it feels like to sit

where I always sit every single day even on those days

that aren’t nearly as beautiful as this one

today here I am in my now springless Freudian chaise covered

in blankets and pillows  in the perfect corner

of life facing trees and a field and a sky that is the same

as sky astounding all day no matter what happens

in this world and there are birds and birds and a light that

turns this day into a very good dream.

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.
