Omer 10: wcw

Omer Day Ten

What better day to celebrate the number ten!

Perfection.
Balance.

Five
On Each
Side.

The Red Wheelbarrow

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

beside the white
chickens.

==william carlos williams


I have spent the bulk of the these ten days
working
and counting
and running
and eating
and working
and reading

thomas lynch's 'the undertaking: life studies from the dismal trade'

and what gets me through

is his humor
and love of poetry

and that gentle reminder that more than once a year

dr williams is worth listening to
