PAD Update

It’s day 8 of the Poem a Day Challenge and I’m still on track. I must say though, that today’s poem wrung me out a bit. The prompt was to write a violent poem and to write a peaceful poem; it turned out to be one of those poems where I don’t know if it’s good or if I’m being too Sharon Olds, if you know what I mean. I just have  to remind myself that Sharon Olds made it work for her, so this old gal has a shot at it too.
