GloPoWriMo: Day 1

The first half of joy is a wave,
rolling in, it curls on itself,
soft as lip balm.

The second half is the same wave
rolling out, or summer gone, gone
kisses chapped and cracked.


For GloPoWriMo Day 1. Inspired by the phrase “The second half of joy is shorter than the first” by Emily Dickinson’s poem  “1750”  ©Misky 2022 Shared with #napowrimo #amwriting on Twitter.

  1. My Beloved Sandra’s a much stronger surf lover than I shall ever be, but your outstanding work here warms me up to it quite a bit, Misky. Very Zen. Thanks.
