Love Bite – A poem written for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles


The Word of the Day today is FREE and I remembered this poem I wrote a couple of years ago, inspired by this beautiful picture by Kira.

I was betrayed;

You never stayed

On an altar of false dreams

I sacrificed myself, it seems.

Our connection died

Our love cast aside.

Your intimate touch

That I loved so much,

Was a passing passion

A fleeting fashion,


Now bitten,



In a heap.

Love may be free,

but it’s never cheap.

Amelia Rose’s Day – a little poem.




Dear Little Amelia Rose,

Tomorrow is your day

You’ll be the envy of all your friends,

But not in a jealous way.

You’ll have to sacrifice your usual fun,

To stay so neat and glistening,

Because scuffed knees are just not done,

When at your Christening.

The tree was a monument to a lost generation.

Each shoe represented a child who’d been shot dead at school.

The killings had to end but the tree would remain until Congress passed laws restricting access to guns.

It would likely remain a while until the blood price was paid.
