going somewhere

in the holy fanfare of summer's launch
deer have begun to eat my flowers 
ants--like anxiety--crawl up 

today a rainstorm teaches me new music  
drums up a calmer beat, hushes me
I'm sentimental, yet not expert 

can you tell me to come in, in welcome
I'll hold my eye open for you 
like the maw of a beast

Pic and notes: A family of geese "going somewhere" although I don't know where. Like this poem. Like the current scramble of instability--trying to figure out how Nu can finish the last week of school from the hospital; trying to read between the lines when At calls to say he's fine after being in a car accident but his car will be towed.

I'm sorry to hear Nu is still in the hospital. I know that's stressful. North was in and out of the hospital during the summer of 2020 and the very beginning of that school year and it was awful. I hope he's back home soon.

I did not know Nu was in hospital still. Get well wishes your way.

Thank you, StephLove and Gillian.

Gillian--It has been difficult to experience, think/talk about. StephLove, I find myself thinking of North and feeling hope for Nu too.

Thanks again.


Some days are just about Huckleberry sticking out their tongue and trying to boop you on the nose.  That's all I have in me today.
