Uvalde | Catherine Penafiel

nine to eleven
the wonder years

shoots in the garden
at the end of 4th grade


just shy of pimples and crushes
a sliver of time

cut short by a reaper’s scythe
he grew from the same soil


Catherine Penafiel is an observer of anything that strikes her fancy at the moment. She publishes her observations at 2ndactblogger.wordpress.com. Her most recent goal is to publish a series of poems about her recent trip to Spain – so much more colorful than a travel blog.
