Poetry Sunday-Autumn’s Kiss

Autumn’s Kiss   A chillin’ kiss on frosty morn, On every blade and flower adorns.   As summer fades and autumn is born The icy dew does bid us warned.       For soon the nights will be long and cold As winter slips in to take its hold.   So cherish for now […]

Seeking Vunerability

Seeking Vunerability

 “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.
