words were poems first BOOK two

selected poems 2014 – 2022

Offered here, the more well expressed poems of this period. Mostly of my own imagining rather than prompt driven as previously. More better poems? By my ear & hopefully yours as well. My wish, that these threads will open other possibilities. Poems here are displayed by date chronology.
Mosaic is of recent acknowledgment, for my sense of being broken (physically) yet looking toward a better gathered whole. 2022-08-15
