Inauguration Day 2013, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

January 21, 2013

The empty wine glass,

chocolates unwrapped,

dirty dishes,

sleeping cat

Falling eyelids,

aching legs:

day fully savored to the dregs.

Outside the rattling wind portends

the coming cold, the battles to be fought.

But today – Inauguration Day 2013 – a moment

to soak in, to drink up, to pause, to celebrate

how far we’ve come.

The sweet taste of liberty & justice,

flowing wider and wider,

The mighty river of history carrying

us – as we steer the course – to and through

the storms – to the Dream.
