Palm Springs


We went to Melvyn’s Bar and Restaurant

where Frank Sinatra asked Barbara to marry him

and she said yes. Lemon drop martinis  and the waitress

Barbara too she’s been there for years

brought over free bread and kissed us goodbye.



Peter showed his movie on Sunday afternoon

with some shorts first.  One called Fast Eddie  93 year old man

a motorcycle champ who still rides.  Full theater

included Pearl  who is 102.  She was once a dancer and now

she says she can do everything except stand up for too long.



Today we will take a movie break to drive to Joshua Tree.

Friends sent us links to difficult hikes.

We won’t take them.


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.
