One sun rose on us today, kindled over our shores...
Richard Blanco, "One Today"
As I write this
My day is ending
It has curled up at my feet with our dog
And the worries and the victories and the furrowed brow
Have all come down to one question....
The freeway has been conquered one more time
The questions fielded
The answers and the decisions made
Except for that last one....what to make for dinner
And even that may go unanswered
because that may be one question too many
and sometimes you just knowing when to stop
is just as important as knowing where to start
and that's poetiquejustis
God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night."
And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.
