write a poem about kindness*


*when i saw the prompt this morning, i thought it would be a good challenge (and round out the story some) to include a section on kindness and tenderness. but i didn’t manage it. not yet. at least the word “kindness” made it in. it’s been freeing to write every day again. although this is clunky (can’t sustain its rhythm/flow), the practice is picking away at things, kind of like that pesky crow.

    Yes. Productive. So glad you are writing. This series is terrific, lots of treasures to keep, as Crow knows. I like especially the bleeding through the bandages, the move to the river (the breaking moves through this like a small tender child) — sounds so dangerous and risky, yet treasured.
