I’ll be writing poetry for a class for the next few months. Some of them will show up here as Saturday Reflections. Enjoy.
Unread Books The clean, prairie landscape of her coffee table is obscured by cairns not of stones, but of books: The stack of three, from her son -- he just thinks she’ll like them; but she will know him better having read them. Another pile, novels full of characters and relationships which, though yet unknown, will mirror and illuminate her life experience. There are so many more: about meditation and the practice of gratitude, about history and the correlating lessons to be learned -- or not. Unread books, all of them; each waiting to enrich the complex topography of her self.
