Poetry of Love, Resistance, & Solidarity

Flowers under the throne.JudyPic

Her shimmering mind.

Stop. Start.

Iridescent rain & portico.

Sky focus.

First, indirect speech.

And she’s there! She herself is there!

The fire put out

Rendered together at your side.

This has always been so special to me.

~ Judith Roitman
