OctPoWriMo Day 1, Reassembly Required #OctPoWriMo

In past years, I have promised to write a poem every day. No promises this year.

Oddly, the topic for today’s poem is extremely timely–or maybe I’m just reading it as we do some horoscopes and find the necessary bits that gel.

Hopefully by the end of the month, I will be totally together.

Reassembly Required


Pieces of me scattered in the pitch.
One by one this day
I reassemble
taking care not to slap myself
together haphazardly
 
I sip tea,
watch autumn leaves scatter
in an unseasonably warm breeze.
Peace with each deep breath
hope healing me.
