Friday 55: On Missing

My first stab at giving grief a face three years ago. Not pretty. Ragged feelings on the page.  It gave voice to that raw, empty ache I had in my middle, that something missing. I could barely form sentences and needed a picture to take up the slack. Making poetry and art helped me through.

And for G-Man and the Friday 55 gang–missing you all is something I can fix.
