Ode to this beer

This double red ale

Bottled in Oregon

Ode to this moment

This quiet time of tonight

That I sit at my table sipping and writing

And thinking of so much more

Than a simply delicious northwest beer

Ode to the calm that has flooded my little body

& Runs thru my veins and sits me down

for the first time today.

Ode to this moment

This quiet, quiet moment

Where I sit and think and breathe.

Life is so much more complicated than we are told

Life gets tangled and disastrously messy

But my god, it is so, so beautiful.

Step back and look.


It’s a beautiful life.

A magical one, if fact.

So ode to this beer that has me calm enough to see it.
