Words can paint pictures of a broken heart, or a smile, or of the first time you knew that it was going to be OK. This is one of the many reasons why I love words. This summer I unveiled a series of poems that I have written throughout my life that have brought me comfort and the occasional closure I needed to start a new chapter in my life.
Last week was the end of this summer’s Story Time Saturday and this fall we’ll switch it up here on My Pocketful of Thoughts. I am not sure what that means yet, but it’ll come to me over an open fire in the woods of Rhode Island. Why there you ask? That’s where I’ll be this weekend, camping and brainstorming! So in case you missed one of my poems, I leave them all here with you today, in hopes that they touch your heart the way they touched mine so many moons ago and still do.
