The return

Yes, I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted here. But I’ve been busy. Or lazy. Or maybe I’ve been working on a super-secret project that I cannot tell you about yet. Take your pick.

In the meantime, here’s an excerpt from Jane Hirshfield from her book Given Sugar, Given Salt.

Great powers once raged
through your body, waking and sleeping.
What remains? …

“What could have happened, has happened.”
The sentence repeating itself in your ear
as a pear repeats itself, each time a little altered,
on every branch of the tree.

— from Hirshfield’s eponymous poem

Be back soon.
