10 Line Tuesday poems every week with Maya Stein.
I just love Maya’s poems. They say so much with so little words. A great lesson in communication in our overly wordy world.
Wood, Poems, Coffee
By Guest Blogger Maya Stein
The day, a series of unconnectable chapters. Bends in the road that lead to a construction site in full swing or worse, a dead end with a sign that says”Turn back.” What interrupts plans, collides with good intentions, tips the equilibrium we’ve been fighting against the sways and sputters of everything that touches us. And how sometimes, our own life begs for a divorce, lifts its heavy arms to sign the papers, begins the first curve of the first letter of our name. Then, like the startle of spring green, the elementals return. Wood, poems, coffee. Warmth, beauty, love.
It is enough. Enough of a bridge that we slide toward the highway again, write a new story that tells where we were and where we might be going.
