yes, that is
a cookie groundhog
with a chocolate chip face
popping out of a bagel hole
covered in cream cheese snow
sprinkled with smashed up wafer cookie dirt .
in honor of world poetry day (yesterday)
and groundhog day (in february)
and bread and peace. (everyday)
“peace goes into the making of a poem as flour goes into the making of bread.”
what a lovely day for a walk in ann arbor
with some of my friends and neighbors
“today is one of those excellent January partly cloudies in which light
chooses an unexpected part of the landscape to trick out in gilt,
and then the shadow sweeps it away. you know you’re alive. you take huge steps,
trying to feel the planet’s roundness arc between your feet.”

“a crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety. “
ann arbor’s mayor chris taylor,
the childrens’ peace and unity march.
i am so proud of my city
the compassionate hearts within.
“master the divine techniques of the art of peace and no enemy will dare to challenge you.”
super moon shining through the trees
“and when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me.
shine until tomorrow, let it be.’
