New Muse by Chad Norman

Poet name: Chad Norman Poem name: New Muse Poem: To observe the gentleness, how the peanut-half is taken from fingers of a trusted hand,  she holds it with fierce paws to feed today’s autumnal hunger,   efficient jaws cause a chopping beat to accompany a leaf’s journey,  through periodic creaks a breeze teaches the birch tree how to play.
