My Story by Karina llergo (used with permission)

Books become her.
One flutters from her
hand holding a rose,
one wraps ’round
her neck as angel wings,
and one, unfinished,
receives watercolor
elixir–droplets from
her essence. A powerful
beauty, she creates
a tree, same hue as
her rose. Her body
brings life to the
needy in her own way.
Bits of her are chipping
away. Who is watching
out for her?

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
