Nine Days After the Beginning of the Year

And here I am,

no list for what I might

do but probably won’t.

Some years are that.

Once I wrote down

all the countries I wanted

to visit although I knew

I probably wouldn’t.  I

could do that again

this year. Madagascar

the top of the list.

And then, Bhutan.

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.

  1. Thank you for sharing your poems. I almost always get a chuckle from reading them, partly because you’re so good at getting at some little human quirk that most of us think belongs just to us.
