Welcome back to Member Monday. It’s a pleasure to feature a poem by poet, storyteller and children’s author, Linda Boyden. Linda crafted this piece at the January Writers Forum meeting with Susan Wooldridge. You can purchase a hardback copy of Linda’s newest picture book Boy and Poi Poi Puppy at All About Books.
by Linda Boyden
nibble the nectar of your roots
crave the caverns of your flesh
tattoo your skin in mosaics
tether your heart and
river you with my love
but when the planet sways
and bitters my song
then will I leave you only the shards
for I am your Persephone.
