Phoenix Poet Judith Wolf Releases New Book Of Poetry
With her trademark sensitivity, humor and power of observation, Phoenix based poet Judith G. Wolf has released her newest collection of poetry, I Hate Being in Love Alone. I Hate Being in Love Alone is available now in paperback and Kindle through Amazon.
Wolf's newest work speaks to the range of emotions experienced after a partner has passed and the strength required to carry on. With glimpses into the daily existence of grief, Wolf paints imagery of deeply intimate moments as a spouse seeks to move forward, alone.
I Hate Being in Love Alone touches the core of life, love lost and the future which follows. Her insightful perceptions, truthfulness and humor express feelings in poems which are full of heart. Always thoughtful, these words apply in some way to all of us.
Getting Ready to Share
by Judith G. Wolf
It's a private thing
throwing away the clothes
giving them away to
the folks hanging
around the street
corners with signs
asking for help.
Should I give them a
shirt or a sock or
maybe even two.
Will it help the loneliness
to know that someone else
is wearing a pair of shorts
he should be wearing
