I’ve neglected my blog for many months. To kick myself back into gear, I’m doing 30 days of poetry. This time I’m using a form called shadorma-—a 3/5/3/3/7/5 form. The form can include multiple stanzas, but I will be doing well to create one a day. Here is day one:

Late Bloomer

Three weeks late,
Autumn finally turns
to reveal
in stages
most spectacular color
hidden until now.
