Poetry Morning

Domestication poetry Rob Hardy

The last several days have been full of many wonderful moments and also way too many tough ones. It’s life. It’s not always easy. I’m feeling overwhelmed. I am feeling like I am failing on several levels – parenting and being a kind spouse high on the list. But I am doing my best to stay task oriented and check things off my list and forgive myself for my failing as best I can.

I can’t do much to change a lot of what is going on, but I do feel better when I take time to notice the wonders around me and decide to be grateful for what I have.

Today I am happy that the birds were singing when I awoke and are still singing away. I am pleased that the forecasted rain has held off so that I could drag the deck table and one chair out and sit outside and have breakfast. And I am glad that this morning I decided to grab Rob Hardy’s new book of poetry, Domestication: Collected Poems 1996-2016 and read a few poems.

I could say so much more about Rob’s poetry and how much I like it. Of how I can relate to so many of his poems. Of how kind of a person Rob is and how I felt so important to have him sign my book at his book launch at Content Bookstore last Thursday. I could say so much more – but will simply say that I’m glad I took some time to read Rob’s poetry this morning.

Take some time to notice the many wonders around you and enjoy your day.
