poetry thursday revisited...


it's been a long time since i've done a poetry thursday... but in honor of being brave and going to my first creative writing workshop all by myself, i thought this would be a good day to do it...

and in her true fashion
she wore T-shirts
with rainbows and
"save the trees"
scuffed shoes and
dirty knees
with her hair in her eyes
she'll cut you in half
and you
won't
even
know
it...
at least
that's what they used to say.

she's not so sure of herself
today.

i was particularly moved with the "hair in her eyes". So raw and real.
