This Bud’s For You

The Spring flowers
starting their bloom
Nature’s powers
pushing back gloom
Life perseveres
despite our fears;
without our doubt

I am happy to say my ha’sonnet “Getting Across” is featured on the FREE VERSE REVOLUTION site today, 25 March 2020. It was written for the FREE VERSE REVOLUTION March Theme “Bridges.”

Love’s Cutting Edge

Don’t be afraid
my little dear
of the sharp blade
Mommy is here
Alive or dead
you’re beloved
and free with me
