2022 Stew

Salty clouds dissolve

into a soupy sky

as a dash of peppery blackbirds

pass by.

The stew we’re in today

took years to brew.

It’s time for ‘22 to be consumed.

Turn off the oven.

Forget the news.


  1. Wow I absolutely love this piece! “Forget the news” – YESSSS!!! So wisely stated. And the metaphor throughout is so cleverly and perfectly written. Grateful to have found you and your site!! 🤍🤗
