For the past several years I’ve been part of a poetry initiative begun by poet and storymaker Kat Apel. The initiative has changed each year until this year, we are cast into the world to make our poetry where we will, if we will.

 My aim is to write a poem a day, but we’ll see how that goes. All I can say with certainty is that today I’m posting my first poem.

From the Train
No seagull squabble
this after-rain morning
no fight, no flutter-frenzy
no cacophany
This day there are worms aplenty
more than enough for all
and each bird works solo
and in silence
to catch their early bird worm
