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
twenty minutes.

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.
