A Poet's Double Life

For poets working outside the literary world.

November PAD Challenge: Day 2



To Be Abelia

Like the shrub I bloom best in full

or partial sun and ample rain, surrounded

by buzz and flutter. But loveless years

have pruned back hopes, cut fairy-tale

dreams to the ground. What will grow

from this stub of myself? How much

longer before flowers return?
