Day 180: A Poem

I’m a bit late getting to my writing group’s prompt for this week but better late than never! This week’s topic was “finding forgotten joy.”

The Plural of Starfish is Starfish

I carved it away
that other me
I remember the agony
and the bleeding raw edges
but I am a starfish
and I am whole again

I wonder about her
the fragmented broken self
Did she heal too?
Can we grab a coffee
and remember that time when…

A family reunion
laughing, reminiscing,
adding back up every joy we each stole
when she was born
