And girl’s soft flowered silk
Mixed and matched together
To make each child a quilt
Too seldom these precious moments pass

PAIN Categories: heavy heart, change, Form: Rhyme
Wet as rain
Touch grips pain
Time feels slow
As hurt grows
That and this

In a daze
A harsh maze
Loss flings art
Pain now starts
Odd this poise
Flings hurt voice
Not in vain
Bear with pain

In the wind I will...Read More
