Just a quick hello!
I was feeling a bit rough yesterday so I give you two short poems: one about opal, the other about the unnoticed leaf.
The first one, “October Opal,” grew out of a prompt to write an acrostic haiku from Mindlovemisery.
Layered in basil and lies
Deflects your evil eyes
The last maple leaf
