Poem in Your Pocket Day

“Little Girl”

Detached, broke free

A parachute seed

Blown away by Aros to sail

a blueberry parfait sky, clouds–

brushed, swirled, whipped;

You never did

belong to me.

    Shannon – this is lovely – feels almost like a haiku. I can’t believe I missed poem in your pocket day this year – I guess I was hiding under a rock 😉
