I have been seeing this collection of poetry by Lucille Clifton shared by poet friends on social media. So while I was in the United States, I made sure to purchase my own copy of the book.

(Amazon | Book Depository)

I have been dipping in and out of this collection for awhile now, and this is one of the poems that called out to me, as it seems fitting for our current reading theme on survival and reinventing one’s self.

Here’s to feeling splendid in our new bones, Poetry Friday friends.
