Something Strong

Happy National Poetry Month! Today’s piece was inspired by a prompt by Kelli Russell Agodon: write a poem about something small using only five lines. My daughter Maria, age 3, stars in this one.


Something Small

Someday she may take offense
that “pear” describes her perfectly–
a deliciously round tummy lobbing,
self-contained, affixed well to the branch,
sweet, tart, and tough-skinned.
