#27 NaPoWriMo


………………………….WHY SHE WON’T GO PUBLIC

…………………………..Just one last patch of scraggly, thorned

…………………………..Underbrush still grows wild between two

…………………………..Neighbors’ flawlessly-razored lawns,

…………………………..Expertly-pruned shrubs and flower beds.

…………………………..by Therese L. Broderick

APRIL 27 — This is my poem #27 for National Poetry Writing Month, composed in response to a prompt on ReadWritePoemwrite an acrostic using a word closely associated with your own life. I chose my birthday month, “June.”  After first posting this poem, I will continue to revise it in the hours, days, and weeks after first posting.
