It has been months since I last joined the Poetry Friday community. Iphigene sends her well wishes but is unable to post this week, and so I had to scramble to find just the right poem.
I am currently at the public library, as I have been invited to give a short talk for the Read Write Tell Communities as a facilitator of a book club for young readers at the Jurong West Public Library during this evening’s book club dinner.
I know, though, that I could not let this day go by without sharing something today. Thank you to Diane of Random Noodling for being a fabulous host this week.
Carol Ann Duffy is my go-to person whenever I want a poem to find me. True enough, this one stood out, stark on the pages. I hope it speaks to you too.
