Often, a somonka will be written by two poets in correspondence. My poetry sisters and I opted to write both parts of our poems ourselves. Here is mine for this week. I have to say, having done it, that I really want to write more of these. Like, a LOT more of them. So I guess I need to write Liz Garton Scanlon a big thank-you note, since this form was her choice.

sharing your secrets
reluctantly at the start,
now confident of my love.
I learned not to trust
too easily—in the past
I was badly burnt.
You coaxed me with open hands,
with open heart, and with love.
And here are links to the works of my lovely poetry sisters:
