Almost


I say almost as if I know one twig from another,
one tree from the next, without ever quite coming to rest —
almost as if one’s good, one’s better, one’s best — almost
as if I’m a teacher and life is a test — when the truth is,
I’m really an imagined bird, and this cold
makes me wish for the nest!

Thank you for inspiring me (again).

Here's one of my favorite aphorisms (by me):

There's no such thing as better. Only different.

What's your favorite color...red, blue, green, yellow?

So which is better, a cardinal, a blue jay, a parrot or a canary?

I like it. In fact, I’d say it’s something to crow about.
