What I’d Write About if I Could

About love.  I’d write about love  if I could

if I had my choice of subject matter

of course I do there are always tasks that get in the way

of words always reasons why I don’t tell the story

of love and how it changes from when we are young

to when we’re not so many kinds of love

are possible if we open our arms if we open our eyes

how easy love can be if we aren’t afraid if we are willing to drink

a cup of tea a glass of wine my favorite Vodka with a stranger

who can become a friend if we can have people we don’t know

at our table if we allow ourselves the time away from our own tasks

if we learn to listen and learn to hear if we want to love.

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.
