Late Summer Collection

One of the things that I treasure about blogging is that it’s simple enough to do–even when the kids are home–as evidenced by these posting highlights harvested from each of my blogs this summer.  I hope you  find a title or two that intrigues you. As always, your voice is most welcome.  Read a post, share a comment/connection!

Daddy

my hands
are little

so little

and
i twist them
in fear

because

you are coming
Daddy

and
you’re,
oh,
so big

You’re coming
to get

me

and I cannot hide

I just have to sit here
and wait

huddled in the corner of my bed
with my little hands

while

you

terrorize me

with the step of your foot

and the

slap

of your belt

tell me, Daddy?
how is it

at 31

with hands no longer small

my heart beats
so fast

while I write this poem
