How We Should Rise
by
Arlene Gay Levine


Next
 

on a cold winter’s day (or any other)
is always with a miracle in mind,
one of many that will be your joy
(and job) to acknowledge, film
rolling in head documenting
beginning, middle and end
as part of every moment, creating
all that is, was and will be, now
(head bowed) and forever:
one wonder,
one deep breath at a time
