Took a couple of days off to process the events of the past week. Hope you are all well, and please, don’t anyone comment on Osama bin Laden on my blog, OK? If I write a poem about his life or whatever, then you can, but I’m meditating on peace at this time. Thanks for understanding! Amy

Road Asides

Roads, those easier I could have taken,
long past regretting.
Lessons learned on bumpy avenues,
long time forgetting.

And yet there is a wistful twist
in every boulevard – if you look hard
you’ll find it and, if you dare,
something good might find you there.
