Bobbie Troy’s most recent poem to appear here was “Beyond Tomorrow” (May 2016)

By Bobbie Troy

throughout life
we must gather
the bits and pieces
of our selves
that we shared
or have lost
along the way

like sheep
gathering their lambs
we must collect
and protect
all that we hold dear
about our selves
and learn to be
just to be

    This is exactly the reason I am compelled to write. Thoughts and ideas and feelings and images and people and places that have impressed upon me so much that I am compelled to gather them together in words. Thank you for sharing yours.
