Giving birth to poetry: writings rediscovered
My 8 month old daughter is almost walking and because of this I find books constantly being ripped from the bookshelf and anything on any table or shelf of her height is propelled to the floor as victims of her conquests( and her favorite place to get down and explore is our local library ... )
So, the other day, as I was picking up books for the millionth time, I was surprised by a poem I had written about month after the birth of my son as it fell out of the pages of some book. I had completely forgotten about it. I am always surprised when I find things I've written and cannot remember them, except maybe vaguely.
There's not much to it, but I figured it was worth sharing at least.
And then when I flipped the page over as I was working on typing this up, I found this.
And now I'm startled all over again.
