Poem 168 – Declaration & Starred Independent Book Review for Thimbles!


The water in the mountain stream was clear like true love
Cold like 5am on a winter morning stretch proud to be awake
When I gathered it in my palms it shocked me like a thousand 
Pages of book paper cutting into me – magnificent

It wasn’t yesterday that we had this exchange
But moons and moons ago, yet like the sky holds a place
For each star, my body holds this memory as it waxes
& wanes & declares its light in fleeting exaltations

Independent Book Review

Thimbles is a painstakingly beautiful collection of poetry of love across generations. I highly recommend it.
