sherku: 2 sides

Pine needles
Soften the forest floor
Or a pain
To pick up
At Christmas time


Snow falls so gently
Or listen
To the grunts
And curses 
Of the shovelers

Inventory: updated Dec 7, 2022

Four be the things I am wiser to know:

Love, patience, process flow, 

and the joy of snow

Four be the things I'd be better without:

Anger, impatience, jealousy, 

and clothing inside out

Three be the things I shall never attain:

Perfection, completion, 

and the last word on any train


Three be the things I shall have till I die:

Bruises, scars, 

and hope for the sky
