Not one to back down from a challenge–here is my offering for Day 4 of Poetry month:
Poetry takes a fragment of life
And makes it live.
Words give meaning to
the steaming cup of coffee
charged with starting another day;
the newspaper unfolded and read
dispersing knowledge needed or not;
to the wash on the line
soldiered together with clothespins;
the tomatoes on their vines
climbing to reach the sun;
the work day with its busy-ness
the evening closing in
to end another day.
Resting our weary bodies
Fragments of life.
