The glow from civilized light
In a fireplace
The touch of living yellow
On everything that’s in
And the writer sits at table
Beneath another light
Scratching on paper, leaving
It is a scene, a tableaux vivant
It brings to us a reason why
Home is so important
It cradles inspiration
Reminds why we co-create with God
C L Couch
A Saint Patrick’s Day of blessings to you.
I use C L Couch when writing formally because it is a version of my name that's genderless. And, frankly, easier for handwriting--I have a severe writer's cramp. In conversation, I go by Christopher, having been named for the boy who had the poly bear and finally being (achieving) fine with that.
I use small Xes all the time because WordPress won't let me cut and paste the text from my program page to this one. (Grrrrrr.)
I am a career educator, semi-retired due to disability. I live in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (USA).
The main photographs at this site (of the road, of me) were crafted by photographer and my friend Debra Danielson. A variety of her work is available for appreciation at
Thank you, lookers, hearers.--Christopher
