Sidewalk Bouquet

Receiving an email informing me that one of my poems was chosen as a finalist in my library’s local competition was pleasantly surprising.

Being asked to read it aloud at a ceremony with the other finalists and honorable mentions was exciting.

Realizing I had overwritten my submission was embarrassing (thanks for saving me Melissa!).

Reading said poem was nerve wracking.

Feeling a strong uplifting sense of community with writers, poets and appreciative listeners was exhilarating.

Thank you Diane Tuccillo, Melissa Beavers, Michael Liggett, Jordan Triplett, The Friends of the Poudre River Public Library, and all the judges for making this event possible.

And for the good feeling I will carry with me, always.

Sidewalk Bouquet

The occasion calls for a haiku:

A sidewalk bouquet

Unexpected encounter

For a step-outside
