i care less
about this today
than i
did yesterday.
for, when i
looked in my
rear-view mirror
and he was
gone, the world
tipped a little.
after i turned
around and went
around the bend
and saw him walking
on the side of
the road and
bits of his car
on the blacktop–
i knew there were
certain possibilities
that would cause me
to want to trade
everything i have
for the way things
are now. i hold today
tighter. and cherish
how we are in this

I’m talking about poetry today over at HighCallingBlogs. Come on over and share your poetry journey!

    Yes, I understand. Would trade over here too. Your words, simple, remind me again. Cherishing too.
    Grateful that all is well.
