Traveling Light

We travel light
stepping into tomorrow
so unknowing so unknown
What is it that we really need?
Like lilies of the field some glory
Like birds of the air some seed
Against the wind some wool
And in each window
some candle-glow

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
