the habit of grace

can pull you sideways with searching
and there is no path but

i want to notice the last leaf
hanging lost
on the tree
and the dragonfly
across empty sky

but there is weather
and living
and love in the mix

gravitational distraction
and mythical escape

and you bend don’t break
one thousand times
every day

with the
of found






A poem a day for 30 days, in honor of National Poetry Month: Day 24
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo, and the Writer’s Digest Poem a Day Challenge
Today’s theme is a combo of NaPo’s mix-and-match and PAD’s lost then found.
