Envy



34ยบ and a blue-ish kind of dawn

Today, I have envy of poet Penelope Scambly Schott, whose poem "Sacrament of the Moths" appears on Verse Daily. For the past three years I have been trying to use the word "crepuscular" in a poem and have failed. Schott does it beautifully, not to mention writing a poem full of whimsy.

I thought the same thing. And not only does she use it, but she uses it in the last, truncated, line!

Definite jealousy, here.

N. & L., thanks for the envy support. Maybe we should form a 12-step group? Hee Hee.
