Somewhere Down

A lifetime
of chipped mugs ago
I sipped tea
looking out
over the Susquehanna
while you talked

I don’t remember much
but for the mint-tingle
of warm pottery
on my lips
and the mood
of the wide, wide river

#4 of 30 Poems in November to benefit the Center for New Americans. Today’s theme is TEA.

So far, my kids are each 4 for 4 with their drawings on the themes! Awesome. I'll try to figure out a way to share the drawings here as an album for anyone who is interested in following their progress.
