The Year of Writing Dangerously

Give her an audacious heart.

A quiet spot for noisy bones.
A stone
to throw softly
or un

Give her the sting of her own
salt, a stum
-bled place to start,
a slant of sun
a nook of shade,
nestled in the garden of broken
…………..and grace.

Give her a book of her own
spilling, a tiny throne to ting it from,
a willing soul
………and a foldable stage.

    Yes! And give it to me, too.

  2. Perfectly spilled…I love so much but if I had to play favorites:

    “a slant of sun
    a nook of shade,
    nestled in the garden of broken
    …………..and grace.”

    So love this!

  3. Kerry O'Connor says:

    I love how you wove both titles in here. And how you summed everything up so well in your final lines.. Oh for a book, throne and foldable stage.

  4. Shawna says:

    Hee hee. Is this poem about me? 🙂

    “salt, a stum
    -bled place to start” … That “s-tum” makes me think of Tums and stomach ulcers (which I used to have awful pain from). So here, these are bleeding ulcers, which somebody poured salt on. 😦

    I especially love the first two lines.

    Love how you slipped those in there. The audacity of that first line 😉 Nicely done!

  12. Oh, I need it also…This is so beautiful.

  13. Rosemary Nissen-Wade says:

    All wonderful, the perfect set of equipment – but for some reason I am especially enchanted by that foldable stage.

  14. Oh I think you have found the cure… a perfect poem for the weekend (if also he could get the same)

  15. I love so many wonderful lines in this but my favorite is “A willing soul and a foldable stage”…a lovely and fun write for a writers heart. 🙂
