  1. That image is wonderful..."minutes like sugar in tea" and the quiet of that scratching. Love this.

  2. Old friends are great to have...

    at dawn
    a rusty plow
    cloaked in frost --
    our talk
    melts the years

    1. Thank you for this quiet moment as I eat my next meal of the day, my lunch.

      Your poem melts the stress from my shoulders.

      I need to breathe...this last week before break

  3. Mary Lee and Steve, thank you for the lovely poetry to start my morning.

  4. Here is my addition to today's poetry: A Simple Reminder=>http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2015/12/a-simple-reminder.html

  5. Better late than never, right? We had a blizzard- about ten inches of snow! And we got the day off, which really hardly does ever happen, like maybe once every two years. I graded papers most of the day.

  6. Mary Lee- such a quiet peaceful image. I love imagining you writing like this.
    Steve- I think the layering of the rusty plow and an old friendship is another perfect comparison. I'm seeing my college roommate on Thursday night. And it really will be just like that.
    Carol- I already left comments on your blog.
