Then and Now

Swirling in the backyard.
Swirling in the backyard.

July 1950. I was almost four

years old and swirling

around in the backyard. My

life just beginning.

August 2016 I sit at my desk

writing my final postcard

poem for this year. Listening

to Sati, the ceiling fan as it

creaks around, the voice of

my husband talking to a friend

and the sound the cars passing.
