Innocent Luck



Picked from a shady field outside
Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Four leaves
reside in my lucky back pocket,
and the years since reflect that fact 
in strange relief ~
a still-life moving forward at my pace.

To my family;

my love

my best wishes

as I walk a strange road of my choosing,
without regret dogging my stride,
and I wish I could verily say,
without this 
sorrow.

I should also add, this is my young niece, Katelyn. She's an energetic little doll who proves that the skinny gene is heavily linked to the smart gene in my family.
