Three Word Wednesday

"And the time came when the pain to remain tight in the bud became greater than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin

Today, my creative juices were tweaked from Three Word Wednesday ...Brandish...Forbid...Manage....three words which best describe my experience last night with my young son.

Lost in the roll,
Brandished by forbidden fear.

Manage to find peace
In the place of the witness.

Happy Mother's Day!

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. ~Oprah Winfrey

Look at that, it's been almost 2 years since my last post... I have started up again because I have missed writing my poetry, and I am now taking some time to do what I love. I have no special plan for this blog other than to weave my life through the poetry I write. I continue to heal as I parent my trauma ridden is a daunting but fulfilling experience.

Today I am using the word prompt from
Weekend Wordsmith which is LOCK

clouds slide apart
freedom erupts as rays burst
unlocking the darkness
