LOVE this, David! I’ve read a number of books by Margaret Atwood, but never any of her poems. So evocative….
Thanks Lori. I agree. Did you see related post with another poem of hers: http://davidkanigan.com/2012/03/18/what-touches-you-is-what-you-touch/
Oh, thx for pointing this out, David! I hadn’t seen it, but like it *very* much as well!
Reblogged this on PIEhole Magazine and commented:
A little Margaret Atwood to calm the mind and soul. Thank you to David Kanigan for sharing.
And here I thought it was a David Kanigan original! It says at the top: Late August by David Kanigan. I was just thinking, “Wow! David is full of surprises,” and then I saw at the bottom, Author: Margaret Atwood, and I felt a bit let down. Why don’t you write one yourself for next time? You can do it.
I choked on my sandwich reading this. Me write poetry. Wow. One step at a time. I need to build up a head of steam. Copying and pasting others work (aka curation) is about as far as we’re getting for the foreseeable future. But I appreciate the enthusiastic push.
I love this, and the poem had me at peaches; I am just savoring every last sweet bite of summer.
Yes. Had me at peaches too!
I just bought a book of her poems last night as a treat to me..Some of this serendipitous stuff just freaks me out…
What are the odds of that?
I’m really bad with probability theory …one in a gazillion?
Gazillion sounds about right!
I wish Margaret Atwood wrote novels as upbeat and inspiring as this poem. She’s a wonderfully talented and lyrical writer, but, so far, every one of her books I’ve read have depressed me. If anybody has read a novel by her that’s left them feeling good, please let me know.
Funny you share this Sarah. I started one of her books (can’t recall the name) – it dove into incest or abuse – and I had to set it down.
