Our house number was always 43 43 Holbrook 43 Hillside

and in the summer when we moved

to Hillside in Woodmont Connecticut

when we moved in June right around now

in  summer when we left behind what winter was

fourth grade or fifth

moved into a green house with a big seawall in front

over  a rocky beach  days became warm

and then again all was possible because

it was summer and yellow

and life became early early morning and light

just like now.

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.
