The poems in Honeysuckle Me strive to be salve and sustenance for the soul. In these challenging times, we must celebrate who, what, and how we love with fervor. The joy of jumping double dutch. Chicago-style stepping. Hair. Romance. Sensuality. The diverse people who comprise the United States. Several new poems have been included in this second edition, including “Scattered Legacy”, a poem inspired by Toni Morrison.
