Retreating over Coffee
7 May 2008, 8:53 AM

Life is all around us at this table-
an amalgam of grief for the past,
joy in the present, anxiety for the future.
They mix and meld as I learn to feel them
freely, purely and unapologetically, knowing
even as I look behind, hide my eyes
from what's ahead, I'd never trade
the one thing that has only ever meant
goodness and light, even when we tap
a little too deeply the surface of the pain
and the cup overflows. We spill just a few
drops of this precious vintage- leave
a stain on the carpet as we retreat
into our morning coffee and nutella.
