Instructions on Not Giving Up

Ada Limón – 1976-

More than the fuchsia funnels breaking out
of the crabapple tree, more than the neighbor’s
almost obscene display of cherry limbs shoving
their cotton candy-colored blossoms to the slate
sky of Spring rains, it’s the greening of the trees
that really gets to me. When all the shock of white
and taffy, the world’s baubles and trinkets, leave
the pavement strewn with the confetti of aftermath,
the leaves come. Patient, plodding, a green skin
growing over whatever winter did to us, a return
to the strange idea of continuous living despite
the mess of us, the hurt, the empty. Fine then,
I’ll take it, the tree seems to say, a new slick leaf
unfurling like a fist to an open palm, I’ll take it all.

Connecticut’s New Poet Laureate Has Something To Say | Beachcombing | connecticutmag.com

State’s new poet laureate, Margaret Gibson, views life through different lens.                                                                           

Our new poet laureate, Margaret Gibson, wants to come to your town or city, go to your public library, park, art gallery or coffee shop, and engage you in a community dialogue while she reads her poetry or listens to yours.

Gibson also aims to further the role of the poet as a “truth teller” in a time of political deception.

“It’s getting to the point that just to speak your own truth is becoming a political act,” Gibson muses as she sits in her circa-1700s house set in the woods of Preston.
. . . Gibson says she wants to “green” the state poet laureate position, “to be able to give voice to the fact that what we’re doing to the planet is endangering it and us and our children’s lives and our grandchildren’s lives.”

A Longhouse Birdhouse: FREDERICK SEIDEL ~

V E R M O N T




The attitude of green to blue is love.

And so the day just floats itself away.

The stench of green, the drench of green, above

The ripples of sweet swimming in a bay

Of just-mowed green, intoxicates the house.

The meadow goddess squeaking like a mouse

Is stoned, inhales the grass, adores the sky.

The nostrils feed the gods until the eye

Can almost see the perfume pour the blue.

A Botticelli ladled from a well,

Your life is anything you want it to —

And loves you more than it can show or tell.
