featured poet ~ Joanne Marie Firth {redux} @JoanneMFirth

originally posted 1 April 2011

the first thing i should tell you about Joanne Marie Firth  { @JoanneMFirth }  is that she is my “bestie” girl friend. we met on twitter toward the end of  2010.  she lives across the country, we’ve never been face-to-face {yet} but she is like a sister to me. i have the utmost respect for her as a woman, mother, human being….  she has been writing since she was young and i must say that her talent is a level far beyond the reach of most. when you go to her blog, don’t miss her additional page of Haiku…a few less words than usual ~ she is also an artist and you will see a little of  her artwork there, too. this is her favorite poem {and i think mine.} she is the Lioness ~ strong, regal, fiercely protective of  those she loves. oh, yes, she’s also a bad ass. but a bad ass with a heart of  pure gold.

“Her Mane”   by    Joanne Marie Firth  {the Lioness}

The lioness

her mane

thinning now

quietly exiting

shaft by curly shaft

Her mane

ever dominant

ever loved

her  private curtain

to hide behind

to wind…..Read More
