Rural Robin by H. Holt


rural robin,
poise is the kisses
you plant

on a child’s forehead
sweating from fever
in an afternoon
of katydids,

such seeds
which seep into
her memory

to bloom into
an eternal love
and connection
to humanity

while your feathers
guide her,

a soft touch
in a dark world

[there are moms,
then there’s you—
who could have

but stayed with me

I am a dreamer, as well as a doer, who lives in the North Georgia mountains. I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.
