Since I’ve been writing for others to see, I’ve been gratified to receive kind words about my writing from various readers. Some offer simple words of encouragement, while others offer praise so flattering I can’t imagine deserving it. Benjamin Russell, author of this installment of the secondhand series, is a young poet for whom I have that sort of admiration.
Ben is one of a handful of writers whose contributions I’ve coveted since the secondhand project began, and I’m extremely gratified to have his participation. To read more of his fine writing, please visit him at Agitation of Hands. Strength of Words.

Haiku for Sally
When the day drags on
I know my dreams will be full
of your soft, grey eyes.
