#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

A long, glorious walk this morning, but no time to write about it. Instead, I find this wonderful poem by Alicia Ostriker:


As if there could be a world

Of absolute innocence

In which we forget ourselves

Black dogs, tan dogs,

Tubes of glorious muscle—

Pursuing pleasure
— Excerpt: The Dogs at Live Oak Beach, Santa Cruz, Alicia Ostriker

To read the entire poem, and even listen to a recording of the poet reading it, go here.
