Where We Are Now


light of an unfamiliar place

our room has four windows

where the Connecticut River

meets the Long Island Sound.

Old beautiful town.

Warm yesterday  we

swam all afternoon celebrating

water and warmth and birthdays

and today if we are lucky

we will do the same


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.
