Tarragon on the Side

Share it Please
next to her fork,
two o'clock from her blue plate,
the tarragon sits on the table.

it is kept in a curiously heavy
porcelain blue bird;
it is rarely used,
but it is always present.

the little bird fits perfectly in the center
of my palm, cradled
in the crevice of my lifeline;
there was a bird's nest in my palm.

the tarragon was never used. I don't even
know why she kept it out on the table, but
its container was a constant--few empty
objects have ever held so much.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
