I posted earlier today about the Poetry with Friends sessions restarting in September after our summer break.
Some of us can’t wait until term starts and are meeting for lunch and a catch up this coming week.
In celebration of this lunch and Poetry with Friends, here is a poem a friend sent to me over the summer. It’s by Kaylin Haught and it’s called God Says Yes to Me.
I asked God if it was ok to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was ok to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even ok if I don’t paragraph
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes Yes Yes.
