Karen’s poem Bulle de Bonheur is up on the Drabble

My wife has a poem up on The Drabble today. It’s her first published poem since sixth grade.

Bulle de Bonheur
by The Drabble

By Karen A. Deutsch

Before the plans have been sketched out
Before the seeds have been ordered
Before the bricks have been delivered
Before the garden debris has been raked
Before the roses have been cut back
Before the angled trees have been staked
Before the garage door has been repainted
Before we slather ourselves with lotion
We sit in chairs left out over Winter
Knees to knees, heads leaning back
Eyes closed, breathing rhythmically
Listening to the robins welcoming Spring

My poetry has always taken a back seat to my art practice; with Spring it sometimes puts out shoots.

    A FINE poem! I love list poems and especially love your details and the lines, “knees to knees/heads leaning back”

    Many congratulations!!
