My cousin writes poetry. Actually, she's really Brian's cousin, so am I supposed to say she's my cousin by marriage? Or is cousin OK? Whatever! Anyway, Brian's cousin, Kim, writes poetry. I NEVER knew. I met Kim the same time I met Brian (2002) and I would say we have become pretty good friends. She and Brian are quite close, so we've all spent a bit of time together. Maybe it has to do with the fact that she lived in our basement suite for close to a year! Hehehe...
Anyway, Kim and I have had MANY heart to heart's and she is a fabulous heart to heart talker. We've had some pretty good conversations! But we never once talked about poetry - probably because I am a complete idiot when it comes to poetry! I don't know why I'm so shocked to hear she writes poetry, but I am.
So, I checked out her poetry blog. Like I said, I know nothing about poetry, but this one poem in particular touched me. I'm sure it had everything to do with the fact that it's about wee Joshie. But I'm also touched that Josh had such an effect on her that she would write a poem about him.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, Kim. We all love you too!
