Rosh Hashanah a few more days (COVID)

 

PREPOEM:

Dear Friends:  Matthew Septimus and I made our millionth (23?) New Year’s card.  I will send you an actual card  if you email me your address.

 

POEM

Haven’t yet written new Days of Awe poems  I am

even now in September not warm any more not summer

either I am even now although the word COVID is spoken

every single day I am even now optimistic that we will all

have days of awe and tomatoes and my grandmother’s kugel

or yours and we will after this after these long impossible months

we will take off our masks and hug one another again.

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.
