New Year Recipe

Boil as much
fresh coriander
as you can find
in a very beautiful pot.
Add lime slices.
Soak your hands
in the pot
then massage them
or ask someone
else to massage them
for you.
They will smell
and feel wonderful
and all that was wrong
last year will leave
from your fingers.

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.
