Even when I say I pine for you,

I am inhaling the drift

of crushed needles in the woods

behind Pausacaco, where

my siblings and I played bears

(not dolls)

piling up orange needle houses

for us to hide in

shelter from the drip of sap and rain

and a broken heart.

    • Arti! I am so happy to have such an appreciative reader. I am currently at a writing retreat so quite selfishly focused on my own work. I’m about to post two blogs about what I’m doing, if you’re interested, and next week when I am not so focused on my own work, I plan to read your blog!!
