every kind of spring/fall/winter weather front
in the span of a single whirlwind of a day
there is new light
in the early morning
a quiet dusting of snow on the ground
clouds in the sky
streaks of blue
a moon hanging high
we’ll try again.
‘every moment of light and dark is a miracle.’
summer pie eating in ann arbor.
it’s kind of a sport.
“so the pie isn’t perfect? cut it into wedges.
stay in control, and never panic.”
floating down the river
ready for however long as it takes.
“rivers know this: there is no hurry.
we shall get there someday.”

argo park, huron river, ann arbor, mi – summer 2019
happened upon this man enjoying his solitude while out walking tonight.
“extraordinary things happen in solitude.”
while spending the better part of a morning
at the salon
and at the having my hair washed stage
a woman I’ve never met
hair in foil for highlights
wrapped in a black robe
and stood before me pointing
to the entire salon:
“now here is a woman who is contented and relaxed,
taking 10 minutes, all for herself!”
something about my demeanor
must have given me away
for she was spot on.
“contentment is the only real wealth”
