I recently rediscovered this poem. I wrote it back in late June, when we were deliberating about when was the right time to finally put down our own beloved dog. I guess I was processing through some emotions. This is beautiful and painful to me at the same time. Prompt: You buy a pair of … Continue reading A Thrift Store Find
It's Friday! Time to share some of my own writing. A while back, as I was experimenting with poetry more, I decided to write some biblical poetry. Poetry is already in the Bible, so why not come up with some of my own in my own style? I'd love to write more of these, to … Continue reading Poetry: Bible Inspired Poetry

Someday, I'll get through those and you'll see them … Continue reading A Poem: Today I did the dishes
