Jamie Dedes here covering for the talented Talon this week. I must say, until now I didn't appreciate the challenge Talon and Bill face each week when they have to choose the Poem of the Week. It's difficult to choose from among Jingle Poetry Potluck poems when so many have so much to recommend them. Mulling it over, I thought: I like this one because it's sweet and romantic, that one because it's technically competent, and that other because it makes a strong activist statement. Which do I choose? A tough decision.
Here's our poem of the week: Lovely Annie's
Untitled - Shadorma
the blue of his reflection
holds her redemption
Since it's a short poem and today's a holiday for many of us, here's another of Annie's shadorma for your poetry pleasure. Consider it a gift. It is ...
the girl fades
between desert nights
slipping further from the place
where they slept like cats
Kudos and thank you to Lovely Annie, Lovely: Life on the Inside (visit her!)
