(learning through regret)

Spin the top
and watch it stop -
the coin on the edge
of the countertop

It’s not by choice
or chance we get
to forge this voice
we might forget

instead, it’s after
the decision’s set
we learn to listen
for lost regret

Inspired by an exploration of the word in The Cabinet of Calm (Soothing Words for a Troubled World) by Paul Anthony Jones

How Might You Live?

From life,
from loss,
come to terms
and move on.
Let go
of the luck
you never took,
the life
you never seized,
and the person
you never became.
Let come what will.
That is
how you might live.
