3:15 Experiment Poetry: time passes

December 27, 2010

It’s near the end of 2010. I’m a bit choked up. It’s been a really really challenging year full of losses–Marshall’s loss of mobility (and fortunate full recovery from a broken neck), the loss of Paul Squires and my mom, the loss of my natural blonde hair and my confidence during the bizarre drama of the Women’s Conference, the loss of another friend last week when he took his life. I’m grateful to my friends who have helped me along; I’m looking forward to putting 2010 behind me and moving forward in 2011.

Because it is that time of year for reflection about the passage of time, here are two 3:15 Experiment poems from my new poetry collection, middle of the night poems from daughter to mother :: mother to son (now available from en theos press).  Please mark your calendar to join me on 3/15 for a reading in Ventura!

the moon waxing near full
would cast enough light

to write this night if
I trusted I’d stay awake

It passes, time does.
A day. A week. A month.
We get through time. We get by.

We go to bed in fog.
And wake to sun.
We go to bed with stars.
We wake to a damp world.
We go to church or brunch
swimming lessons and bike rides.
The cat gets fed
the plants watered
the bills paid.
Alarms go off.
And words get scribbled.
Dirty clothes & dishes pile up
eventually get washed. Ev … Read More
