I am proud to bring to your attention the work of the latest poet to be featured in our Introduction Series. Ario Farin's work can be found at Scribblings and Sketches.
I visited there because it is the latest blog to be added to our blogroll. While there I found the poetry displayed to be both stunning, for its simple beauty, and lush, for its depth and thoughtfulness.
Not only is the poem below a standout but also check out Tenderness and my personal favorite Sketch
Please make sure to stop by Scribblings and Sketches.

Your Blog Manager,
Sara from The Shores of My Dreams.
She speaks of distance and regret
As if they are raspberries,
Chilled from the fridge,
Sweet and a bit fleshy.
She remembers, she forgets,
You were gone, I was thirsty.
The fall of her orange dress
Into the dark chocolate of her lap,
Hard and sharp.
She returns one, neatly squashed,
Between her index finger and thumb,
A shade and tang that lasts.
