My Mother's French Provincial Chair
The poem is about the sweet memory of an old chair. I am sure everyone has a favorite chair or the memory of someone else sitting at a comfy old chair. Do you have a favorite chair?

I want to dedicate this poem to my friend who recently lost her sister. Her name is Esperanza which means hope. One should never lose hope. Hope is all we have to hang to when things are tough. The second poem is about knowing whether or not you think you might me a poet. I call myself a poet with deep humility. I started thinking about what a poet should feel or do. Once again, my poem does not have a title yet. Please leave a comment. I appreciate all the comments I have received so far regarding my previous posts.

What resonates today.
Sometimes my poems are reactions to articles I read. Many of the poems I read have been put away and have never been read aloud. It is only recently that I have conjured up the nerve to read them aloud. The Girl No One Knew is based on a true event. As an educator it saddened me. I wanted this little girl to finally be recognized for her courage. Many of many poems are untitled and this one remains without a name. This poem is what resonates today. I hope you enjoy the poems. Don't forget to please leave a comment.
