First of all, I apologize Coffee Lovers: I've been away from the blog this week. Not to worry, though, I won't miss an entry for quite a while now (fingers crossed, of course).
Secondly, it's Monday, and therefore time for a poem. This is a favorite of mine, short and sweet, by one of America's most beloved writers.
A Sort of a Song
Let the snake wait under
and the writing
be of words, slow and quick, sharp
to strike, quiet to wait,
--through metaphor to reconcile
the people and the stones.
Compose. (No ideas
but in things) Invent!
Saxifrage is my flower that splits
--William Carlos Williams
Yours, in words and espresso.
