Is a soft pomegranate
Shiny seeds spilling out
Soft offering proffers
Sell by date
Arbitrary or fated circles within circles
Once, you bled
The same crimson as a dress you wore to fireworks night
Until invisible hands
Ushered away the urge to bring
Life wriggling on flat earth
Straining you heard
A primal cry
It was you
Half covered with sweat
The emptiness of the day
Your belly full

Powerful, Candice. I love pomegranate. So does my youngest…
Thank you so much!
It arrived! YAY! I shall be sending mine. Thank you so much Betty.
The PO said you’d have it last Friday. Strange it took ten days! Glad it’s finally there – will look forward to yours. 😍💕
Really? I dislike the PO these days they actually get loads of business frm Amazon et al and their prices are going up and up. I shall be sending so sorry for my tardiness had a really hard couple of weeks – thank you dearling I am reading and so very grateful! Loved the card, you just know don’t you?
Sent it first class on the 13th. (So 9 days, not 10.) Next time will send UPS! Please don’t apologize for being “tardy”. I totally understand about rough weeks. Just take care of yourself first. Will look forward to book, but don’t rush. Hugs! 💞💞
💓 thank you for being so understanding
I loved your work today. Artwork and words. A amazing journey.
