I almost named this poem "Lacuna."


Swim fast,
towards wrecks already lost;
dive down beneath
and look!—
here, the chaos sown—
push past to the surface,
next the horizon;
where the new spring waits.

    February is the month for me. Despite being a short month it drags and drags – and the weather in San Francisco hasn’t been helping. Hang in there!

      On the plus side, at least we’re out of drought conditions for the year. But I feel you…I’m ready for some sunshine here in SF!
