At first glance, this picture may appear to be a shameless promotion of my most recent book of poetry. But no! I merely want to bring your attention to that dried twig of a weed…
Walking along a frozen Arkansas road one cloudy day, I saw that twig at my feet and thought, “Yeah, I’ve had days like that.”
I’d found a metaphor…a personal metaphor.
