Sometimes, it’s all you can do to wade knee deep in the rubble, glance up and chuckle at the impermanence of it all. Sometimes, that is enough especially if you catch someone else looking.
(The August Poetry Postcard Project was initiated by Paul Nelson of Seattle, WA. It challenges poets to write a poem a day in one go with no revisions on a postcard. Afterwards, the postcard is mailed to other participants. This is my second year and I had fun making friends along the way. I will be sharing the postcards here, most of which are printed with my photos.)
