I’m very lucky to live in Saint Paul, MN, a community that supports writers and writing via many non-profit, business, and government organizations. I’m also lucky to have this poem published on the Saint Paul Almanac site as part of their “Breakthrough” writing contest this spring. The poem tries to capture the revolution I experienced as a younger woman of understanding my mother’s sacrifices to family while claiming my own path — all within the contained space of the sonnet form!
