Overread at the Counter: Poem of the Day "Building Traditions"

we build traditions through seasonal repetition
of similarities that build upon the framework
of memories, usually from childhood (for childhood
is the fount of all memories, even the unremembered
memories), and this framework is

like the circle of a dreamcatcher, and the traditions
are the webbing between the circle, and the tiny
charms, dangling from the conflux, through which
the morning light shines, and

we awake in some new season to add another dream.
