Written for: Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – My Dearest Book, I Wrote You a Poem
Weekend Mini-challenge: Write a new poem dedicated to a novel or a poetry collection
you love. (131 words or fewer)
Thank you for giving my silence
words, for helping me explore
marriage, longing, pain and love
between parents and children.
You bring me the excitement
and peace of wild things. I dote
on your quotes, advice, and variety
of poets expressing themselves.
Your exercises provide me
with work, interaction,
and knowledge. You do heed
your title by healing.
