Zucchini Shofar

I subscribe to two daily poetry email lists: the Poem of the Day from the Poetry Foundation and Poem-a-Day from Poets.org.

A recent Poem of the Day was Tell the Bees by Sarah Lindsay, which intrigued me enough to go look at some of her other works.

I found Elegy for the Quagga, with its honoring of silent loss in the face of renowned tragedy;

and then I found Zucchini Shofar, which is one of the most wonderful poems I've ever read - so thoughtful, and loving, and celebratory, and wise, and utterly joyous.

I love this poem.
