for I don't know where I am

the day will happen soon enough
the shout of the sun 
the hit of to-dos 

how I will climb up the afternoon
then slide down
to dinner 

the hours search with serrated teeth 
to stitch time up
into context

sleep is a circadian memento mori  
yet I step to it

its shadows frantic, lurking in gaps
but once its here
its here

I really like the afternoon hill/dinner slide-- perfect description. Also time with knife teeth sewing-- loved that.

Cute puppies.

You have got to get your sleep schedule under control!!! Or maybe more naps? I always think naps are the solution.

Thank you, Sarah!
Thanks, Gillian!
NGS--I know! (Naps *are* a glorious solution.)

I love this

"praying for peace/living with love"

The world is so beautiful and the world is so terrifying. Over 17,000 people have been killed by bombs and gunfire in the past eight weeks.....
