<![CDATA[It's Friday, and today I am thinking peaches. Yes, that's right! A fruit not yet in season here in Wisconsin, but yesterday we had 60 degreee temperatures, and so, sweet, succulent peaches are ripening around the corner! Today I read Li-Young Lee's "From Blossoms" which I dedicate to my dear poet friend Rachel Heimowitz, who adores Li-Young and turned me on to his poetry last year during "Truth & Beauty" at Carter Hall. Her exuberance for poets and poetry is infectious! Also, I would be re-miss if I didn't mention another amazing poet and friend, Judith Zukerman, with whom I always associate peaches & poems. Robert Vaughan reads “From Blossoms” by Li-Young Lee – YouTube What is your source of joy today? What brings you the same exciting fulfillment as biting into a succulent peach?]]>

Thanks so much for listening to these poems! They all mean so much to me, so I’m happy you are getting something from them.
YAY! Peaches (and Herb!) Lovely poem my well read friend. My source of joy is wrapping this gig I’m on and getting home in the daylight hours to have some FUN in the SUN! Can’t wait really for peach season…yums. Happy Friday!
Dearest @, I hope you get some down time soon! You deserve it. And peaches, yes…yummy! Slurp!
