Dawn

Travail is what binds us,
The broken hearts we share--
And so it is we travel thus
In longing and despair.
Yet for the night that lingers so,
The road still winding on--
There is one thing I breathless know,
That dark precedes the dawn.
And for the hope of daybreak,
That it will intercede--
I once more smiling waken
Yet unwilling to concede.

Hi Paul. Lately I've been posting on FaceBook, even as I work on a poetry manuscript for Solstice Publishers. Still, it's nice to now I have a family here. Thanks for the read, my friend!

Hi darlin. Some of my poems are more hopeful than others. I'll be around cuz. Thanks for reading and commenting--especially important as I prepare a manuscript for Solstice. The closer I get, the scarier it gets! Take care, Barbara xxx
