April 2nd: Yes

William Stafford

It could happen any time, tornado,
earthquake, Armageddon. It could happen.
Or sunshine, love, salvation.

It could you know. That's why we wake
and look out--no guarantees
in this life.

I shared this poem in October of 2014.  You can read the rest of it here, or hear it read. And here's that original post.

I shared another William Stafford poem in January 2008, and I liked that one so much that I shared it again in December 2010.

Tabatha has today's line for the Progressive Poem.

I love April and all the beautiful words it brings.  I hope you are enjoying it too!

He knows how we act: "that's why we look out". Love this share, Ruth.

Thank you, Ruth! This reminds me to think of the GOOD thing that is every bit as likely to happen (when I am worrying about the bad thing that MIGHT happen)... have you read the book about William Stafford by his son Kim? So so good. I bet you would love it! xo
