From April 2015. Really not sure of this one. Revert to draft?




A cloudy Easter Tuesday

A cloudy Easter Tuesday, chill and raw:
day of few doings: pharmacy, Mexican lunch,
visit to Mom's, nap on the guest-bed; then,
home in time for poetry and tea.

What will tomorrow bring, if God allow?
A trip to the Stop & Shop, long overdue?
Confession at Arch Street? No, maybe Friday.
The Everest-pile of put-off laundry?

 

Concentrate on now, this night. Seek peace:
not "out there," in the always-warring world,
but "in here," in the often-seething soul.

Hope for no world. Worlds become extinct.
I'll give you five cents for the politicians:
infinite worth lives in one human heart.

Very nice, especially the two middle stanzas.
