Today is Thursday and Hope is Who We Are

For reasons of elections

September 11

end of summer

people sent emails of something like despair.

What we know for sure is fall

after summer.  Then winter.

There is always spring. History

moves in circles.  I don’t know

answers or reasons. Today we can all vote.

We can change what could happen a little. Today

we understand that it’s Thursday

and that who we are is hope.

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.
