We are on this journey

all hands on deck

living through a time

of crisis and pandemic and

also during one of limitless love,

expressions of compassion and

common commitment to do unto others.

Your Daily Kief is grateful

for the opportunity

to breathe through this time with you

for from moment to moment

solid friendships do emerge

greater connections than ever before

with deeper appreciation

to have the experience

not to be missed.

 

Nathaniel Mackey (1947-), American poet, novelist, anthologist, literary critic, and editor, (quoted here in The New Yorker “Life and Letters” Column: “The Long Song” April 12, 2021) “You go out and you look into the sky. We live in this act of creation that is unfathomable and overwhelming. The intricacy, beauty, fearsomeness. We push back by becoming active, becoming producers, and putting our little pieces of creativity down next to it. It’s this idea. I can do something, too. But every now and then, when the flow’s not coming, you gotta get up from your couch or the desk, you gotta go out on the porch, look up at the sky and enjoy the humility of just taking this obviously superior and more complicated creativity. What we do could never match that. Could I ever write a poem as intricate as a pinecone?”
