Leaving (NS 1)

When I was young  I traveled often

for three months in Barcelona

a silk sac of earrings  perfume three kimonos

in three lengths I bought material a friend made them

to wear  separately or together

high purple shoes   red bathing suit.

Packing was nothing.

Only books were bulky.

Nova Scotia for 2 weeks  I consider

weather and cold and feet and hiking trails

and nuts and a water bottle. Downloading

audio books. All that remains from traveling

before a small silk  sac of earrings.

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.
