Twenty Word Tuesday

Through the fall, I have been participating in a weekly poetry project called Twenty Word Tuesday which appears mostly on Instagram and via the hashtag #twentywordtuesday. It was begun and has been moderated by Charissa Sylvia who is herself and exceptional poet and writer. You may follow her on Instagram HERE.

Here is a piece I wrote at the beginning of October which was inspired by this beautiful 120 year old chestnut tree I came across while walking one afternoon.

Standing here
I begin to believe
It would be enough
If all I left behind 
Were the trees
I’d planted.

And here is another twenty word poem written in response to what I think is my enneagram personality type. Piglet may be the most enneagram six there ever was, and the title is, Six.

You asked me for 
my Enneagram number,
And I replied, 
“There are so many ways
This could go wrong.”
