I gave my friend a priceless gift.
She did not look inside.
She did not lift the lid to find
what treasures it might hide.
Writing “life lessons” poems is one of the ways I connect with life, learn from it, and move myself through the inevitable ups and downs with as much grace as possible. And what better way to find grace than in the words of a poem? Thank you for gracing me with your presence here, and don’t forget to send a request my way before using.
