New Beginnings (a broken* triolet poem)

Today is the day

of new beginning,

though the way

ahead is unclear.

Though your head may feel

like it’s spinning,

today is a day

of new beginning.

It may be a day

for grinning.

Aren’t we lucky

just to be here?

Today is the day

of new beginning,

though the way ahead

is unclear.

Incantation Over Tea

steam wafted
above his fingers
earl grey hot
and I smiled
while he spoke of clouds and storms
I hoped for the rain
