Week One: A Found Poem – #sol15

Sunday:  A full dayFeet a foot of bed

Settled in



The letting go

She reaches.  I look to him.

I look to her.  She proclaims.

They are my life.

    I love this! What a interesting idea! What if we looked back on every week and pulled the nuggets from each day? I wonder what would stick out to us. Probably not all of the small daily irritations.
