Reflections and Memories in California


Computer, camera,
Cash, drivers license, photo ID,
soap, shampoo, tissue.
Paper, pen, notebook,
math, poetry, maps, GPS, glasses,
rented car, booked tickets.
Watches, cell phones,
a bagful of items needy,
hope, thoughts, satisfactions.
Standford university,
university of California at Berkeley,
golden gate bridge.
best western,
northwestern university from Illinois
purple tigers, beaches.

Repetition by Kay Ryan

Trying to walk
the same way
to the same
store takes
high-wire balance:
each step not
exactly as
before risks
chasms of
flatness. One
tumble alone
and nothing
happens, Few
are the willing
and few
the champions!
