Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

In the Morning Kitchen

The start of something great

Here is a beautiful poem written by a young lady called Shannon Azzato Stephens. Shannon is currently studying in Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh USA.  It was just published in Emprise Review, July 2010.  On  recent trip to Ireland I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon. She told me that she was involved in creative writting and had written some poetry. I asked and received her permission to publish this poem on my site.

It is great when one meets individuals who are prepared to write from within  and share it with the rest of us. All I can say is keep up the writing and poetry Shannon.

In the morning kitchen

Jade leaves puffy, shining, just

dusted off, their stems hardened,

age lines winding down

into the soil.  Grandfather’s hands

in the work: each branch held

by a bamboo reed, velcro

wrapped around their tips to catch

any sagging arm.  These plants

don’t rustle.  They hold the light

at their tips.

Many thanks  for letting me publish this on my site.
