I started this blog the day I finally fixed a tap for the first time. The sense of triumph gave me the feeling that I could also master the complexities of setting up a blog. Clearly not, however, as I had intended calling the first post, not the whole blog, I Buy a New Washer. By the time I worked out how to change the blog title, it was too late.
I dwell on whatever has caught my attention in the day.

I Remember My Stepmother
Your Smile Like a sheet shook out for drying
your smile lifts the world by its corners,
shrugs off the edge of cold
the way an April day washed in rain
can refresh everything,
melt what's been sorrowful,
clothe the earth in the hope
of amethyst and gold: of a new flowering.
