Every night before I sleep, I tell my secrets to the moon

"Retail therapy" Journal page

...for the never ending winter blues.

A 65% discounted winter coat from Gravity Pope, 2 new $9 hats from Divine, a large, funky, waterproof bag for swimming towels and bathing suits from Elephants Never Forget, small $12 summer slip-on shoes and an $8 striped summer T Shirt from Superstore, a recorder, ANOTHER pair of spiderman pajamas, a wooden backscratcher and a pair of Gap jeans —all thrifted from Value Village. Oh yeah and a used pair of tap shoes for my 2 year old daughter Piper (that she has yet to take off).

Sigh...its going to take forever for ALL our snow to melt.

There Will be Time

There is time still
for sitting in cafes
in Paris
sipping wine.

Time still
for going to meet
the guru.

There is time still.

Now I am caring for eternity.
Carrying bodies soft with sleep to beds
of flowered quilts and pillows.
Answering cries deep out of nighttime fears.
Buckling shoes.
Opening doors.

My soul is now dwelling in the house of tomorrow.

Tomorrow there will be time
for long leisurely conversations,
for poems to write,
time still.

So I surrender now
to them and this,
knowing it is they
who will teach me
how to do it all.

~Peggy O'Mara
