sunday morning musing



soft wisps unfurl
under autumn's cooling earth
womb waters new vines

  18. I know this poem is close to your heart, LaTonya. I was a September baby and so was Riley, but the watering of the vines continues for your daughter. LOVE the image you chose. Truly a reminder of sisterhood. Peace, Amy
