thoughts of the cloistered

thoughts of the
cloistered play
large as I power

down the noise
machine reclined
in a room just light

enough to
see the path the pen
is taking in the

journal I’m
aware that every mark
could be my last I

always ask
as I close the book and tie
it’s leather laces

is that all
really that there was to be had
of another day?

    Ethel and I have nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award. You’ll have to go to fourwindowspress if you don’t know about it, and if you follow the instructions you’re a winner. We are mainly trying to let you know how much we honor you and your work, so you may or may not chose to accept the award. That’s up to you, but we certainly think you are worthy of more than this one gesture of thanks for you and your poetry.
