The Daily Read

  • Tarnished Silver

    Intricately designed silverware sat at a long table

    Carefully placed next to ornate porcelain china 

    Silver goblets so shiny you could use them as a silvery mirror

  • Red Clover

    I dream of him less than I used to - 

    But our story always starts the same.

    I am small, and his oil stained hands hold me like the Red Clover;

    So tightly that I think he’ll never let me go.

  • The First Light

    In the First Light, I am stepping out into rays of golden sunlight, and I am floating through air that is buoyant with the songbird's melodies
