Jane's Poem of the Day!

Here is Jane's poem for today.  She offers another memory. We were surprised this morning when we compared notes to see how we both touched on how privileged we are.  It is hard not to feel it.  I recently read that a country that spends more on their elders than their children is in trouble.  We are that country.




The place where two elevated highways join had made a roof

Beneath, an island in the middle of two streets.

There, briefly, was a bed made up like home.

Blankets cornered. Pillow fluffed. A teddy bear.

As if the walls had blown away.

Leaving only roof and floor

And that proud bed.
