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.
Clear as their joy and yearning
By Guest Blogger Maya Stein
We were lucky. The weather service predicted rain, gave us the news with three, four days to prepare, and we added to our luggage the wardrobe for a downpour.
Not them. Not those bystanders at the race or the runners in it.
They began their day innocent to the fury accompanying their journey.
They did not pause after their early breakfast to consider anything but the picturesque spring morning they’d woken into.
A perfect day – oh cruel irony – for running.
I imagine them, peering at the sky, clear as their joy and yearning.
This is what I want to remember: all that blue and the season, turning.
