Wicked Awesome

Wicked Awesome

She is wicked awesome
With an impish grin
Spills smiles and laughter
Mixing salt with her sass
Keeps people in stitches
And heals with her words
Something akin to magic
Sees life on the bright side
Even in the dark
Wields a sharp tongue
And a soft heart
Finds her way
Digging in the dirt 
While dancing in the moonlight
Her joy more than skin deep
A beautiful soul
With lovely bones

  1. Oh, Lori this is one of my favorite birthday gifts this year. Thank you so much. I love cherish it (and share it, too), turn it into writing and smile fuel. 🤗

    1. I'm glad you like it. I hope your birthday was a very good one. You fill me with smiles and silliness and sassiness and you're so very amazing. 🤗

  2. Honestly ... your tribute poem for Magaly's Birthday made ME cry.

    1. Oh thank you! I have a poem that was inspired by one of yours that I'll be posting sometime this month. I'm just looking for the right image to pair with it.

  3. And I am in the middle of painting walls, preparing for a new sofa delivery in two to three weeks, etc etc and for the short time I was online, I see you had a marathon read of Poetry Matters and I THANK YOU for that. See ya later alligator.

    1. It's been far too long and I'm sorry I've not been around to read you more. I'm so glad I got a chance today to sit and read and catch up! Good luck with the painting! In a while crocodile! (Or as my kids used to say... in the Nile crocodile!)
