The Earth Still Turns

The Earth Still Turns

ByBrown Bag Poets

A Gathering of Brown Bag Poets An eclectic collection of world views by six women who write of the joys, puzzles, mysteries, humor, and grief encountered in life—and of the courage and strength that helps us to survive. They write of— … being “poised on the edge of expectation” ... finding joy in changing seasons, “I reach for a wild strawberry and taste September.” ... warm love, cold hearts, family secrets, “If you don't talk about it, it didn’t happen.” ... a woman, beginning “to dwell on death,” recalling her tiny footprints inside her daddy’s giant ones, following as he plowed. ... regrets of unsatisfied aspirations, “the shades of time are drawn with sighs.” ... effects of aging, “He’s lost the tales he once told.” ... fighting fears, “She stays inside now trusting the roof to keep her grounded.” ... goodbyes, “as you breathe more lightly, ready to shed your tired body.” ... and how we go on, “just as if the earth is still turning.”
