some days

some days
I read a poem
and seem to
understand

other times
I reread and
then I may
understand

and years later
see something new

This week, I am rereading Eye of the Beholder: Poems, by Luci Shaw (2018, Paraclete Press).

The language arts are an ever-growing source of inspiration. Sometimes it is good to simply “hear” a favorite author’s voice. A book may have been with you during a difficult time, and now you understand in another way. Luci Shaw is a generous writer. I gave a few of her books to one of the four places where I received care in 2018 and 2019. Now my care is at two places. And home, with Karl. The goal is to maintain progress.

We have to be patient during this time of COVID-19. Karl follows the science regarding progress for a vaccine. We are following directions!

Please see Luci Shaw The Official Website, if you would like more information. I look forward to her new book later this year.
