Today's poem is "Thirst"

from Copper Nickel

Jennie Wrisley's poetry has also appeared in Smartish Pace and Front Porch Journal. Her family writes: "After suffering from a misunderstood neuromuscular disease with devastating symptoms for over ten years, Jennie surrendered her spirit to God in February 2010. Following her death, her loved ones discovered a trove of intimate poems 'nearly prophetic in their clarity and calm acceptance of the nature of suffering and grace.' She will be remembered by many for her gentle spirit, love of the natural world, and deep spirituality."
