Today's poem is by Jack Ridl
A List of Possibilities in an Uncertain Order
Lighthouses may well still be useful.
Dogs live knowing how to live; they alone defy Kierkegaard.
God is likely tired of being God.
If you wait long enough, the shadows . . .
Despite what they say, it can be good to take a nap longer than
Rain that never falls is still rain.
Amen is the only way out.
Honeysuckle, like love, grows anyway.
Etudes could well be beautiful when played on a kazoo.
The lyricism of early morning often arrives unaccountably.
