My Soul’s Truss

©2012, Selena Howard and Olan L. Smith

Tonight my grief is nixed by trust

My spirit seeks forgiving peace

    ― Its fieriness does burn my soul’s truss

Tonight my grief is nixed by trust

Confused my heart cries, hollow lust?

    ―A gentle word gives sweet release

Tonight my grief is nixed by trust

My spirit seeks forgiving peace.

(A triolet poem)
