On Transition

Hello Writers and Readers,

This is the last note you will see from me on the main page for a while, I promise. I simply wanted to offer a huge thank you to all who sent your wonderful poetry on transition over the past week. My inbox overfloweth.

This week, I am highlighting just a few, with more to be featured shortly. Read below for a taste …

Read, soak it all in and please utilize the comments on the right side of the page. Let’s talk about the life underneath the words.

And, as always, send me your work at [email protected]. Please include a tiny bio as well; we want to know who you are!




After reading Charles Wright, I myself stumble upon a line from Lao Tzu …

The way to do is to be,

said Lao Tzu.

Jesus said,

The way to be is to do—or close to it.

11:45 p.m.

Velvet fog on the molehill,

Mel Tormé crooning me the majestic glory:

Do be do be do be do.

By Fred Allen
