  23. I found it less that fun but very cleansing. Poetry can empty the dark spots in one's soul.

  28. I was eager, but my muse was being stubborn. This is a scene from my Midwestern youth -- dusty midnight moths, noisy junebugs, and sad words of good-bye... :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. I went with what my muse saw in the picture...seems it was a broken heart.
