Sweetness

“What sweetness do I have in my life?”
I was asked in a context.
I answered, “writing the poems,”

as if that was the dessert
and not the main course.
As if I didn’t see the sweetness

in all the rest: family, friends, flowers,
dramatic clouds rolling across deep, clear sky.
As if music wasn’t sweet and dancing.

As if life and loving,
breathing and birthing
each day, each minute wasn’t sweet.
