A poem originally posted November 2010 for your reading pleasure.

Shawn L. Bird

She trusts him
-the truth of him
–the truth of them

but she fears
the helplessness
-having watched him
unfold and unravel
under eyes that glowed
with glorious attention.

Temptation trails closely
behind such glowing eyes
and apparently intelligence

and good intention
are not always
adequte protection
from ampilified admiration.

That’s the truth of them

-the truth of him

–the truth of trust.



A submission for One Shot Wednesday.  Check out the poets.

Wow.  From a thousand cases a DAY when Rotary started the campaign to eradicate polio back in 1985 to only 134 cases so far in ALL of 2012!!

Yay Rotary and partners!  We’re THIS CLOSE to ending polio!
