Thoughts on Morning Glories

a long day--
my tears of joy
rolling down
translated by David Lanoue

A bit of a bumpy ride this week, but I'll be up and posting again Monday. Just needed to get my mind around a couple of things and folks out there helped me do just that. The schedule will be Monday through Friday, with an occasional lapse when under the gun. Tuesday will be the day I post from the Back Issue Archive of Lilliput. Thanks for your kind thoughts.

A nice little post mentioning Issa's Untidy Hut from fellow librarian/poet Keddy Ann Outlaw, on her Lone Star Librarian, helped put me over the top. Thanks, Keddy.

Back to the regularly scheduled program ...

Gratitude for gifts,
even snow on my bedspread
a gift from the Pure Land
