and been loved
i love
and, joyously,
am loved beyond measure
all else
let it be

knitting life (a pantoum)

insert needle tip, wind yarn
draw loop through to interlock
slide to opposite needle
create whole, a stitch at a time

draw loop through to interlock
work without looking
create whole, a stitch at a time
without seeing consequences

work without looking
slide to opposite needle
without seeing consequences

light speed

light, hurrying along
across the universe
took years to reach
our telescope
arriving weak and faint
although purported to
be a full galaxy in itself
but i suppose going
that speed for twenty-three
million years could
tire just about anyone
