Oct 28 one day early

Thursday October 27

Today-Tomorrow our university Trustee’s quarterly meeting, we’ll be slamming tasks and talks and visiting.

So here, a day early, is a short poem I love to pieces and occasionally post.   Back Monday on regular schedule.  Have a blest weekend.

Today’s Post:     The Manoeuvre
I saw the two starlings
coming in toward the wires
But at the last,
just before alighting, they

turned in the air together
and landed backwards!
that’s what got me —
to face into the wind’s teeth.
