Literacy and Me

April first is here, and as promised, I have returned. I plan to celebrate/pursue two things in April, National Poetry Month and “All Things Autistic” during National Autism Awareness Month. Each day, I will post a poem, and when the muse inspires me, I will post thoughts, book reviews, and information that I hope will be enlightening and helpful concerning autism.

Today’s poem is for those of us sharing a cuppa’ coffee, tea, or morning brew of your choice. It is by Jeffrey Johannes and is titled “Silence”:


Sometimes fog

surrounds morning

in a white room;

then the silence

of sunlight seeps

into balsam shadows.

Steam is silence too,

Slipping over the brim

of bare china

in the coffee-quiet

of morning.

That lovely few words and a few more sips should get us all off to a good start this first day of National Poetry Month.
