The Solo Book Club- "climbing" by Lucille Clifton

WOW! I just finished the first poem of "The Book of Light"  "climbing" and I am blown away!  I can't believe that so much can be said in so little. I just could not believe the use of words.  So accurate, so precise.  And, the images are exactly what I feel now as a woman in her mid-thirties.  All the maybes, all the "should haves", and I'm still hungry.  But, now I am hungry for a time when I am fed by what I do have and not by what I don't think that I have.  If you can dig that, lemme know.
