My list of “good reads” today is shorter than last Saturday’s, and they were all posted before Tuesday evening. Then came the almost simultaneous labor for my daughter-in-law and head injury requiring surgery for my son, the father-to-be. Life is slowly returning to normal, or becoming a “new normal.” And I’m already becoming a bore on the subject of my new grandson.
Phoenix-Karenee’s poem, “Wordless Vision.”
Maureen Doallas’ beautiful poem "Anne," about Anne Frank.
Laura Boggess’ poem in her Sunday Sermon Notes.
The End of Innocence by Justinian at Discount Verbiage.
Shadow, Jezamama’s walk along a lake, a story and a poem.
