where the writers are

38 times

Weddings and graduations

Summer solstices

My brother's birth

And 30 birthdays

And before me --

A blue and yellow wedding in 1973

Wisteria and fog and

Roses and trout

Lakes, streams, oceans --

Road trips and camping

132 finals. Followed by clearing out lockers.

One twelfth of my life.

Romantic getaways and my divorce.

Always, always a 

New beginning.

The big breath before

The next next whip

Around the sun.

And ---

Here we go!
