Doing the dishes
you sing so softly I can
barely hear my tears

  1. Thanks, John. I’ve been feeling the need to return to poetry—or at least some form of writing—for sometime now. Funny how the two activities seem to be incompatible—at least for me. I have plans to visit your site and see what you’ve been up to. (as well as Thomas Davis and Anna Mark—and some of the others contributors to Indra’s Net. While there’ s no Yeats or Stevens among the crowd, there some excellent poets out there.)
    Also I’m thinking of doing something more with the situation somewhat strangely described. Two adverbs among 15 words… Humm.
    Well, we’ll see.
    Thanks for sticking with me. And let’s hope for a good and healthy new year.
    Jim
    Was it Kipling who had a poetry deter built into then hairs of his neck? Or was it Marianne Moore? I’m too lazy to look it up.
