    I am so glad you are participating in #OctPoWriMo… and while the aim is 31, any amount is a positive increase so…. fine by me! Is it selfish to say I want to see more!?

  3. Ink-hued remembrance…I like that a lot. I’m not always a fan of short poems but this one says everything it needs to…I really enjoyed the imagery. 🙂

    So glad you’re joining in on all the fun!
