April 15

I don’t know what to say

I actually feel quite good today

But poetry lives in sadness

(some would say)

the inky shadows on the page

2B pencil’s soft and shade but

sometimes being happy is brave.

So I’m taking in a moment of breath

bringing pencils on new steps

sketching lines out far and wide

going places I cannot hide

still don’t know what shape to take

dreams becoming what we’ll make

savoring the light and shade

sometimes being happy is brave.
