Poetry Friday: Red Glass

In honor of Latina Book Month and rgz guest author, Laura Resau, I wrote this for Poetry Friday.

Poetry Friday

Red Glass

Latina Month fires
piercing light through pure red glass,
to emblazon souls.

Catch the full roundup with the wonderful Maya Ganesan at Allegro.

Ooooh... love the haiku! Now you've inspired me to try this form! I sometimes write read and write poetry to get my creative juices flowing before I delve into writing more of my novel-in-progress. (As Red Glass readers can guess, I love e.e. cummings and Pablo Neruda...)
