Gratitude with a view

Imagine looking out over the port, where orange and white cranes rise like steel dinosaurs above a colorful assortment of shipping containers, the city all around, and the mountains further east.

I took the photo, but it’s on my phone downstairs (or I thought I took it and didn’t click hard enough?), and the booming is just enough to concern the cat, so I don’t want to disrupt him by making any more changes (or moving at all).

But that mountain maritime view is where I was writing, or trying to write, or writing about trying to write. (There’s always reading, so I read.)

Then I helped my daughter fix the food and enjoyed a dinner with family–good times.

For a poem, today I was reading Jenny Johnson’s book In Full Velvet, and here is Summoning the Body That Is Mine When I Shut My Eyes.
