Here is my first full-length original poem of 2016 that I wrote for Nicki Aycox:

At home in a Red Velvet Room by Tracy Diane Miller

In quiet solitude
My heart won’t betray
The seeds of a song
Nurtured this way
Any doubt I can forget
Fear uninvited
I have no regret
At home in a Red Velvet Room

I’ll tell you My Secret
If you want to hear
Nostalgia so precious
I hold most dear
The sights and sounds
Of a city that doesn’t sleep
Memories I cherish
My heart shall keep
At home in a Red Velvet Room

The persistent sound
On my window pane
Heaven’s tears
Or Charcoal Rain
Fear uninvited
I shall not cry
To savor the strains
Of Old Man Joe’s Lullaby
At home in a Red Velvet Room
