3 thoughts on “LEFT BEHIND

  1. You use some great phrasing in this poem. I particularly like “the rough cut pages of my haphazard history”, it has that ‘sticking in the mind’ quality.

    • Thank you. Sometimes a good line slips in…you do some very nice things with words on your blog too…
      “…argumentative crows
      black scrawny scribbles silhouetted high
      against an evening sky…”

  2. “Ultimately, our future is like a mirror. Whenever we face it, it always reflects what we left behind.” ~ Marilyn vos Savant
