Spillwords Author of the Month Update, and rhythm and sound

Spillwords Press, NYC

I am elated and honored to share with you that I was voted as the Spillwords Press Author of the Month of January and February!

I am deeply grateful to Dagmara K and the entire team at Spillwords for supporting my work; and deeply grateful to each of you for being here, supporting me, and being such wonderful friends. It is because of each of you that I am here today. You inspire me, and I appreciate each of you very much. Thank you!


rhythm and sound
walking along the ground, I stumbled,
and fell

happenings like this
tout a specific
rhythm

and sound, like walking amongst the
clouds

what confused me most then,
was not knowing —

love
is derived from
within

took quite a few more stumbles, and
tumbles

among the trees,
the leaves,
and

all of the misery

to notice, the hand was always there, even
when on the
ground

I was already found…

ravens flying on wings, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am excited to share my poem, ravens flying on wings, which is now available at MasticadoresIndia. A big thank you to Terveen Gill, and the entire team at MasticadoresIndia for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

ravens flying on wings

the curtains, pulled tight, made of silk, and
reminiscent of the night, reminds me of
a time, before transgression,
and

possessions of body and mind…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

an afternoon under the sun…

I walked through the door once, and into a different land
entirely, sky full of blood, torn in two, it was
a wonder
to feel
the
loss at the center of the vacuum…

thoughts racing, with a heart rendering love, an afterglow
cast,
inside my
chest breathing
fast, and then,
in from the gloom

came you, sure-footed, with a love the size of the moon,
dispelling the shadows in heart and mind,
you did always remind me

of the aliveness
living inside of moments
won

as great clarity did come, and you and I settled in
for an
afternoon
under the sun…
