Laure-Anne Bosselaar: Lately,

   when a branch pulls at my sleeve 
like a child’s tug, or the fog, reticent & thick, 
lifts, & strands of it still hang like spun sugar 
between branches & twigs, or when a phoebe 
trills from the hackberry, 
			    I believe such luck 
is meant only for me. Does this happen to you? 
Do you believe at times that a moment chooses 
you to remember it entirely & tell about it — 
so that it may live again?

    We are the universe’s way of knowing itself (Sagan said something like this…)
    Yes I believe what you posit herein.
    Thankyou for asking it again.
