Swelling protectively

Guard against weakness

Pretend to be bigger

Ache inside.

    Greetings again! Welcome to Friday Night Poetry Corner. We are nearing the end of another year and with that the 3rd year will begin for the corner. The various, creative, intelligent poets featured this year hss surpassed the previous year. Hopefully that trend will happen in 2016.

    Welcome a amazing poet; Shawn L.Bird and her joint called “expansion.” It is a short, brilliant poem who speaks of pain for some and normal sensations for others (well my interpretation). Now sit back and enjoy this work and visit Shawn as often as you can!
