We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.

-Joseph Campbell






(just like) Starting Over

 A bleak morning.

Ground fog, again.

It never used to rain so much.

And then,


the mist bows to a casual cumulous,

and evening cadences fall from a cloud-mouth of stars.

The future catches in my throat,

musky and delicious,

sitting between us

like the last piece of candy in the box.


Toni 1/29/15 (and 1980)

      1. He did some beautiful children’s drawings at one time and it was eventually made into a nursery line. When my husband’s first Grandson was born we did the whole nursery in John Lennon. It was wonderful.
        I’m still knitting. I imagine with all the snacks around today (Superbowl) I will be obsessively kitting all day long. I’ve never thought about naming it but that’s a good one.
