What can I say
It was an ordinary day
neither awful nor awesome
neither holy nor unholy
Simply ordinary

What was here
flowed down`stream
What wasn’t here yet came
What was here before
went out to sea

I recorded it all
here on my blog page
which I see now is not here
at all but somewhere
out there in ether

There you have it
Today’s news . . .

“The clouds are rarely absent from our sky
over this humid valley, and there is a sycamore
that I watch as, growing on the riverbank,
it forecloses the horizon, like the years
of an old man.”
~ Wendell Berry

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!
