SMOKEY’S BLUE EYES

smokey had blue eyes
they sparkled in the
water like the water

The
Garden willow tree
gone with
the rest
and yes, they mattered.

Why do you like to write poetry?

Abigail Miranda Miller: “I like to write poetry because it allows me to say things I’m thinking beneath the surface.”
