Another Year


As if we were planets
Waltzing into another universe
We sit down to dinner
There’s too much smoke between us
Your face locked in a mask
Betraying tears I’ve wiped from its cheeks
Passions we’ve unfolded in our soul’s
Search for the right recipe
Spiral down the drain
….yet from the pieces left behind
We’ll pick up and try again

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
