Pencil Blend: 2006_ColorPencil_Drawing1 by Carol Hershey

12/31/08_Poem by Betina Hershey Russo

This year
Passed like a stone:
Big and bland,
Painful to push through.

When I examine
The excrement
I am astonished
To find such a dainty oval
With dusk in its colors.

I expected a dull sheen,
A rough, well angled, ravish-less
But now I see
So many shades
Of forgiveness.
Your eyes are in the polish
Somewhat withered, but cat-joyous
In the new-found sun.
