this summer has been about time
and even healing,
but mostly time.
for the first time in 30 40 50 years i have time to schedule in
my own way
i have purchased a few things that delight me
i have made some things that delight me
i have worked out new ways of thinking
used up old papers
prepped pulp for some new papers
i have observed how strong the moon is
when you really pay attention
and let her do her magic.
i have been delighted by small things
like a peep through a barn
and i have rested.
i have eschewed all appointments
and seen my doctor
and learned to work with this aging but still vital body.
but mostly i have had
mornings when i wake with joy.
and evenings that promise
