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.
for L. & K. & S.

Vermont and the smell of rain on those back roads. The beard on the man in the coffee shop. The neighbors’ daughter, petulant until she dizzied herself on the front lawn. The price of organic blueberries. A secret Tuesday in June. The way the faucet won’t tighten. Fresh paint on an old door. Phone calls to Illinois and California and your father. Another run to Home Depot. Tears when you least expect them. Tears when you do. The beach and its crashing symphony of children. The book you are, unknowingly, writing. Maps from the places you’ve traveled. The startle of grey in your hair. A photograph from high school, that regrettable dress. An avocado, underripe, you open nevertheless.
