This is my most recent post after spending a few days on the road with my family (visiting colleges in the San Francisco area for my sister). I’ll admit, it’s tough getting back into writing once you’ve skipped a few days. But, it does feel good to be back at it.

 

Dispatch me
that I might feel the cool calm
of open water lapping gently
this subtle shoreline
of roughened cheeks
– regret-stained marble surfaces
weary of the harshness
of repetition, the coming and going
of such briney tides – smoothed
with practice and patient
optimism.
