Small stones 23 and 24 and poems going to the End of the World

I wrote about my poem being entered in the Poetry for the End of the World contest, and being a finalist. I wanted to share the link to the video showing the balloon launch on Saturday, Jan. 21. If you scroll down the page you will also see the winning poem by Ian Ferrier.

Day 23

randomness of weather
today rain turns winter’s
clean white to grimy gray,
pools of water over the slick
of ice, waiting for someone
to slip-slide into wet.

Day 24

to focus large on life is to realize
that more of it has passed
than is to come.

to focus small on life I realize
I have each day: a glass
to fill with wonder
or to empty, untasted.
