If I’d Only Remembered {Not} to Listen


The world’s got
a funny way of saying
I love you,
a sunny way of flaying
my skin
wide open and
asking me to shine.

  1. Nebraska says:

    So many hearts for this!

  2. I like the way your sun is sweet and salty, as is always the case. your 8 lines truly shine

  3. Long difficult days at present.
    Then I read one of your poems
    and remember
    that life is a celebration
    and I breathe
    and smile.
    Thank you.
