Stalactite/Stalagmite

Summer of 2019 has been hectic! I am delighted my brilliant husband had a successful summer with his Page & Stage theatre-for-literacy camp. We had a couple dozen energetic campers, great adult helpers, and a fun summer. One five-year-old went from not knowing all her letters to reading short sentences.

Between that and some family health struggles, it’s been a while since I worked on my own writing. Please enjoy this shape poem, recently published in the 2019 edition of Encore.

 

STALACTITE_STALAGMITE (5)

I think the hardest part of visiting a cave is wanting to touch the stalactites and stalagmites, but knowing you shouldn’t. They labor so hard to build over hundreds of years, and a touch can ruin it all. Such fragile, mighty artists.

Encore is available now on Amazon.
