Tomorrow my husband and I are leaving for a Labor Day camp trip in northern Minnesota. I have every intention of posting my poems from the great outdoors, however, there is a chance I won't have the connection to do so. If I do not, fear not, the poems will be written and I will post the missing days when I return. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Poem #223: Heartbreak Cure
I'm still dizzyingly in love with my husband five years after our wedding day. Yet, I know from experience that heartbreak brings the worst sort of pain so today's poem is meant to help anyone going through a hard breakup. As my sister said in her speech at my reception "you have to kiss a few frogs to find your prince".
Poem #222: Ride or Die
Poem #221: A Clever Place
I cannot tell you how many times in my life I put something in a "clever place" where I was sure I would think to look again only to seek it out hours or days later and have no earthly idea where I put it.
Poem #220: Skullsworn
Here is a poem I wrote about a book I read recently. The book is called Skullsworn and it's written by Brian Staveley. It was a unique and exciting read. My poem is a spoiler.
