Oh, Charlotte

Oh, Charlotte.

Where are you when we need you
to weave happy words over our be
-fuddled heads, whisper
        (salutations)
sacred truths
into our soiled
pink ears
when all else
in our
        (some big)
crazy
world
is
un
spun.

    Day #23 brings an Ekphrastic poem. I wanted to do one with a children’s book illustration, and this one just spoke to me.
