Arrives on the lush green grass
Fresh off the press
Damp from water we do not have enough of here in Southern California.
What matters? What’s important? If I am uncertain an editor will shout.

Stooping to pick up printed page Smile rises. Privilege of time on a beautiful spring morning.
Returning to my breakfast table I read of troubles and turmoil, difficulties and strife and I wonder
What brings us here each morning?
Other’s struggles beckon.
We attend and then
Pour another cup.
And another day has begun. We are informed.
