I was so worn out Sunday night I couldn’t face even a weak attempt at writing. (Yes, we got home safely from our Missouri sojourn Sunday afternoon.) Now I’m three poems behind but still have good intentions. The day 20 …

This may be the last poem I’m able to post “on time” (more or less); I’m headed out of town on a road trip with Diamondqueen tomorrow through Sunday. A pilgrimage for my sister to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder …

2015 PAD – Day 14

The day 14 prompt at Poetic Asides was “write an honest poem/write a dishonest poem.” (On Tuesdays, there are two prompts.) Instead of choosing honest or dishonest, I tried to combine them: IT WAS THE TRUTH I told her she …
