Row upon row

line upon line

of enraged crickets

teeth bared in feral snarl

as they prepared for war.

Facing across the muddy field

snow crusted and blooded

vicious canines

bullies of the world

ready to enforce their will.

Whilst all around the humans wait

unaware of the debris

the fall out of the war

being played out at their feet.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
