Today's poem is by Laverne Frith
if I do not accept splitting wood
for the building of the porch.
A deforestation of the spirit
has occurred in the blister of the sun,
in the dank of storms ... resistance
to the winds. I want to sit and not hear
the creakings, the many reminders
of the vulnerabilities that place us
in such danger, the limits beyond which
we all must crack.
