folded into each other –
month of remembrance

    Love this! (I feel like those first two lines are a perfect representation of my wife and me.)

    Lovely, Maeve – and a perfect example of 5/7/5 being just right for the content.

    So glad for the socks. Can't be nice being lost from your partner.

    Lovely poem

  5. Marion Clarke Says:

    The openness of this poem invites the reader to consider the person who sorted—or currently sorts— the socks in their lives. A very homely image, Maeve.
