Just This, or What It Looks Like Here

(maybe this should be in the County Route 20 series too)


Green green green green green

and that sky

so blue you think maybe

you’d never seen blue

before and at night

the sky is bigger

even bigger with black

and then stars and a moon

that is a wonderful painting

of a moon and there are birds

with familiar names and an owl

and the earth so full

of growth and growing

on top there are day lilies

and something purple

hostos hibiscus a lushness that is

deep and always more

than what you can dream

and then there is light

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.
