What’s in your Pocket?

Here’s hoping it’s a poem that pulls at you all day.  If you’ve not yet found one, take a moment, press pause, and sit with a poem before you rush off to life’s next very important calling. Here’s my pick: blessing the boats (at St. Mary’s) may the tide that is entering even now the lip of our understanding carry you out beyond the face of fear may you kiss the wind then turn from it certain that it will love your back       may you open your eyes to water water waving forever and may you in your innocence sail through this to that –Lucille Clifton, from quilting, poems 1987-1990 Find poems at The Poetry Foundation, The Writer’s Almanac
