Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Mary Lee at A Year of Reading for Roundup.
4 Things That Have Brought Me Joy This Week:
1. My library opened back up! I'll be heading over there later today to pick up a nice stack of books on hold for me.
2. I made some parmesan mushroom risotto that was pretty darn awesome.
3. We walked in a warm, gentle rain several days in a row.
4. I got some unexpected happy-making mail. :)
And now here is the latest ArtSpeak: RED poem. Enjoy!
The Truth Is
a girl can wear flowers
and still know sorrow
the wind can scatter sorrow
and still push a sail
a sail can bloom crisp, white
and still harbor regret
regret can steal hours, days, years
and still the sun rises red
