in the cool of an open-windowed morning
steam curls from my tea
dancing vapor masterpiece
i sit
open to a day
pregnant with potential
 and possibility
the train on its lonely mission
the moan of a machine
in service to its master
the birds
the birds
always and forever
the relentlessly optimistic birds
today i wish
i could speak their language

i feel like i have way too many balls in the air right now - the consequence of course of being gone so long.  in this frame of mind it's especially important to take a few moments to sit.  reflect.  write.  and dream.  sending love your way!!
