I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by writing and reading poetry, every day. My poetry project grows out of a list of things that make me happy. I made this list on the 30th of March.
Number twenty-seven on my list of thirty things that make me happy was listening to my friend’s voice as I walk. A large part of this joy is the relationship of back and forth. Listening and talking.
things I dare not say
she will hold without judgement
words that might strike some
as angry, selfish.confused
or worse are nestled with care
