contemplation and conversation

As a writer I spend a lot of time by myself, yet always in conversation in some way.  “If we were having coffee . . .” I’d speak of this wintry April we are having in Wisconsin, and how our long cold springs by Lake Michigan are balanced by warm golden autumns.  We often go to Judi’s Place in town and I enjoy a cup of decaff with their good meals.

cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God
