Just a Little Get-Away
A Winter Diversion: The ChapStick Challenge - Week 4

It is Friday

It is Friday.  Capping a busy week.  Heading into a busy weekend.  Leading to an even-busier next week.  More snow.  Muffler repair (Tom's).  And a party to throw.

This is when I turn to . . .

poetry.

Join me.

The Storm

Now through the white orchard my little dog
     romps, breaking the new snow
     with wild feet.

Running here running there, excited,
     hardly able to stop, he leaps, he spins
until the white snow is written upon
     in large, exuberant letters,
a long sentence, expressing
     the pleasures of the body in this world.

Oh, I could not have said it better
     myself.

--- Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Volume Two

Ahhhhh.  I feel better already.

Enjoy the weekend . . . whatever it may hold.
