This National Poetry Month I will be posting a sequence of poems, written last year and this year, for others in a series called Giving Poetry. In this series, people request a poem using a title, specific words, concepts, or ideas. After writing the poem, I send it to them, posting it on Facebook and on my blog. This is Giving Poetry.
Words: trust, comfort, pain
Hugs: for Jesse
hugs, to hold,
to linger and remain,
to build the trust,
to comfort the pain.
